ESRI has a link on their site to this super useful public information map of wildfires in the western US. It’s a tough summer with hardly any rainfall in California so if you live in a danger zone, it is probably a good idea to a)prepare to evacuate b)make sure you clear brush from around your homes, and c)watch the map!
