Here is an active fire map, which shows large incidents around the country and region. As you can see the west is dealing with many fires in many states.

This data was provided by the National Interagency Coordination Center. I found out that Type One Incident teams are dealing with the most complex situation. We sadly have many 'Type One's' in our region.
