KML

KML image Download Keyhole Markup Language files of MODIS active fire data for the last 24 hours and 48 hours. An auto-updating KML is available for visualization of the active fire/hotspot detections for most parts of the world for the last 24 hours. The KML automatically refreshes every 2 hours and downloads the latest available MODIS active fire/hotspot detections. For more information, please see the KML README (PDF).

If you have Google Earth installed, you can open the KML directly or you can save it to your local disk for later viewing.
