When there are multiple fires happening at once, it can be extremely confusing to know which fire might impact you or your friends and family. Fortunately, there is an interactive map developed by the BLM Alaska Fire Service that can help you learn more about the fires most important to you.
This map tool isn’t perfect and is not updated in real time, but it can be a great tool to give you basic information about incidents. You are also welcome to call the Fire Information Center at 907-356-5511, either to learn more about this tool or to learn more about fires you’re interested in.
First step: Open your web browser and go to http://fire.ak.blm.gov/
Then you’ll need to navigate to the map:
Hover your mouse over the “Maps-Imagery-Geospatial” tab and another menu will appear:
Click on the “Statewide Fires” line and your map will open in a new window.
