Summary

Searching for the latest details about wildfires just got easier on Google Maps — and not just the ones nearby.

Last year Google added more wildfire info in Google Maps and Search, but only if you looked up a specific fire or pulled up driving directions that went through a fire zone, like the Caldor fire in California — as seen burning above. Now the Maps app will show all wildfire information about multiple fires with a dedicated layer.

If you click the layers icon in the app, which looks like a diamond on top of another diamond, you’ll notice a new fiery icon next to the “transit,” traffic,” and even “COVID-19” layers. It’s clearly labeled “Wildfires.”
