Why are the incident "flames" on the map sometimes different sizes?

  • Updated

The size of the flame icon reflects the acreage of the fire. This is only a rough guide, to indicate whether a fire is small, medium or large. For very large fires that have an official CALFIRE perimeter, we show the perimeter on the map as a red shaded area.
