Fires in California – 2008-October – Google Earth/Maps

[UPDATE November 2008: If you're looking for maps from the November 2008 fires (Sayre Fire, Tea Fire, etc.) read this post for detail and links to view maps in Google Earth for better 3D data.]
LA Fires in Google EarthThe LA Times has posted a Google My Map of the current major fires in the San Fernando Valley. The two primary fires are the 5000 acre Marek fire which at this time is 70% contained, and the Sesnon fire which is nearly 10,000 acres is still burning strongly. The primary concern is the winds at this point which lessened a bit earlier today. You can check the LA Times Fire Map in Google Maps, or you can view it, complete with 3D terrain, in Google Earth here . The LA Times has been updating the fire map as the fire status has changed.
