Interactive Wildfire Map

The LA Times has created an interactive map of the devastating wildfires currently blazing through Southern California that details their breadth, and the efforts of firefighters to contain them. Each major fire is pinpointed, with vital statistics on how many buildings it has destroyed, how many acres it covers, and how many firefighters are engaging it.

Combined with images like the one at left, which was captured by NASA's Aqua satellite last night, it's hard not to get a sense of just how massive this disaster is.—Gregory Mone
