Incident: Coyote Fire Wildfire
Released: 5/8/2016

To view an interactive map of the fire, visit the Fire Enterprise Geospatial Portal (EGP) at Click on the icons on the left to select the layers you want to view. Recommended layers include Active Incidents, Satellite Fire Detections, and Active Fire Perimeters.

MODIS satellite fire detection data representing heat sensed by satellite is updated several times throughout the day, providing near real-time information. Each 1 km MODIS fire detection is depicted as a point representing the centroid of the 1 km pixel where the fire is detected. They are categorized by time of detection; last 6, 12 and 24 hours, and all detections previous within the last 24 hour period. The MODIS data represents heat, but sometimes can be misleading as it may pick up heat from a smoke column, etc. outside the fire’s perimeter. However it can help provide a sense of where the fire is most active throughout the day.

MODIS Fire Detection data is also available in Google Earth at You need to have Google Earth open on your computer before opening layers. To install Google Earth visit
