US Wildfires Map

I thought this is a pretty good map of wildfires across the country put together by ESRI.

Here is the description:

The Esri Public Information Map shows the real-time effects of extreme weather events and others natural disasters. You can use it to explore live data as well as geo-tagged social content from Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube. You can customize the map by panning or zooming, and localize social content by changing the keywords or date ranges.

These layers are combined on top of a detailed basemap which can help us understand not only where the events are occurring, but also understand how it may impact human life. You can explore other disaster response related public information maps from the Esri Disaster Response Program website.
