Current Northwest wildfires map

PORTLAND — The Northwest fire location map displays active fire incidents within Oregon and Washington. It is compiled by the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center.

A Large Fire, as defined by the National Wildland Coordinating Group, is any wildland fire in timber 100 acres or greater and 300 acres or greater in grasslands/rangelands or has an Incident Management Team assigned to it.

Please note: the points displayed on the map above indicate each fire’s starting location and provide general references ONLY. Fire information is updated as it is received. However, gaps may exist in the daily updates submitted to NWCC, and the map above may not reflect the most current fire situation.

Fire points and perimeters are collected in the field by a variety of means, including infrared flights, and using GIS and GPS technology. Since data is not received for all fires, you may not be able to view perimeters of every fire.

  • Large Fire Information Summary

    Detailed information for each fire; including the lead agency, description of location, number of threatened structures, cause, current conditions, etc.

  • Northwest Large Fire Interactive Map

    During fire season this web based map is updated daily with current fire perimeters and locations. Access detailed information about current and historical fires.

The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center provides logistical support and intelligence for wildfire activity on lands overseen by all federal and cooperating state wildland fire suppression agencies, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
