About This Map

The Colorado wildfire map and tracker indicates the most recently known wildfire locations and perimeters throughout the state. While this map is updated daily and is useful for tracking ongoing fire activity, it is not updated in real-time and should not be treated as a live map—nor does this map display evacuation routes.

  • Location Search. Use the search bar to find your location and view nearby fire activity. You can also scroll and zoom to explore the map at your discretion.
  • Incident Updates. Wildfire incidents are marked by fire icons and fire names. Click on these icons to view timestamps and recent updates.
  • Perimeters. Wildfire perimeters are highlighted with light red overlays and dark red outlines. Keep in mind that fires can spread rapidly, so these perimeters are not necessarily precise.
  • Hotspots. Thermal hotspots are displayed with bright red dots. These spots may indicate the beginning of a wildfire. However, they may also be false positives due to volcanic activity or other thermal events.
  • National Coverage. This wildfire tracker is focused on Colorado, but it can also be used to track wildfire activity across the country.

Colorado Fire Season

Like other states, Colorado’s fire season is lengthening due to climate change. While the western fire season historically lasts from July through October, Colorado’s fire season is gradually starting earlier in the year and ending later in the year. Due to this, it’s important for residents to track wildfire activity year-round and to take precautions to protect their properties and families.

What Causes Wildfires?

During dry months, strong wind and dry vegetation in Colorado make it easy for wildfires to ignite and spread rapidly throughout the state. Common causes of wildfires in Colorado include:

  • Campfires & Bonfires.When left unattended, campfires and bonfires can easily ignite surrounding vegetation. Once ignited, these fires can spread quickly in dense forests.
  • Drifting Embers. Strong winds can carry embers from small fires for miles. Once these embers land, they can ignite dry vegetation and other materials, leading to major wildfires.
  • Downed Powerlines. Downed power lines are a major cause of wildfires throughout the United States and have led to some of the deadliest fires in the country’s history.
  • Other Events. Other events, like discarded cigarettes, lightning strikes, intentionally-set fires, and some weather events, can easily start wildfires.

Protect Your Home from Wildfire

From using fire-resistant building materials to installing a high-quality sprinkler system, there are several steps you can take to safeguard your home against wildfires, including:

  • Fire Resistant Building Materials. Fire-resistant building materials should be used when building or renovating to protect against ignition. Fire-resistant materials include concrete, dual-pane windows, fire-rated glass, and more.
  • Defensible Space. To create defensible space around your property, be sure to remove flammable objects around your home, manage your landscape, and ensure there is plenty of spacing between plants.
  • Wildfire Sprinkler System. The Frontline Wildfire Defense systemproactively hydrates your landscape and home to help prevent ignition.
