Found on, the above live map shows every wildfire within Washington State and is complete with interactive YouTube and Flickr links.

As impressive as the wildfire map is, it is sad and eye opening realization to how many fires are effecting Washingtonians (and the rest of the Nation).

I for one am hoping for rain, lots and lots of rain.

Continuing to research videos and maps, here is the latest experimental map showing the wildfire smoke forecast. We Western Washingtonians are getting off easy in all aspects of this summer season.

State fire departments are working hard this year and they could all use some support.
