Mexico and Guatemala Fire Maps

The maps presented here depict areas of numerous fires and areas of active fires in Mexico and Guatemala. These have been produced at the request of the USDA Forest Service (USFS). Information was derived from a variety of sources to create the boundaries seen on the maps. The maps allow definition of areas that may be of concern given their proximity to population centers or valuable national assets. Additional maps will be produced as more data becomes available.
