Moonlight Fire Maps & Links

Blogging local fires by local media is catching on. Earlier this summer the Tahoe Daily Tribune covered the Angora Fire in blog form but refused to call it a blog even though “posts” were laid out in blog form. The Santa Barbara Independent ran a great semi-blog covering the monster Zaca Fire.

The Moonlight Fire is getting full blog style coverage from Plumas County News who operates multiple print newspapers in the Plumas County area. Not only great coverage but up to the minute. They offer some great images that locals sent in as well as maps dragged from around the web.

I guess newspapers don’t have to cite (credit) material?

No matter, if you want to get the freshest info and great photos click their link.

The following map is built by Google Earth Data conversion by Zeke Lunder from NorthTree Fire International using KML in Google Earth.

The map following it is from Inciweb. The Google Map shows the fire area. The second map shows the hot spots. Do your own overlay to get an idea of where the hot spots are.
