The CIFFC fire situation report from 1 June lists the fire at 4,500 ha; however, it appears to have doubled in size the past day (considering the June 2 hotspots and elevated thermal response in neighbouring pixels).
The above map and all maps of previous days can be directly accessed at the Fire Monitoring, Mapping, and Modelling (FireM3) Project website (the FireM3 project is a collaboration of the Canadian Forest Service and the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing). Through the Map Link you can access daily hotspot images. An Internet Map Server, which is like a simple GIS running on the host computer, allows you to zoom in on any fire or other area of interest and view the image and map data at full (1km) resolution. You can also click on any fire and get information about that fire.
Several vegetation fires were detected by OSEI with the NOAA-14 AVHRR satellite on 2 and 3 June 1999.
