Benton MacKaye Trail Fires - 2022

These are the most recent Benton MacKaye Trail fires, BMT fire perimeters, hotspots and surface BMT smoke information.

View google maps of National & BMT Smoke, National & BMT Fires/Perimeters or both layers together. Fires/Perimeters are updated every 4 hours, surface smoke is updated hourly. A Fire weather map showing red flag warnings, fire weather watches, etc, is also available. A 4 hour heat map of Air Quality Index is also available.

Surface smoke data and fire weather is from NOAA, fires/perimeters are from National Interagency Fire Center and hot spots are from NASA.
