Active Fire Data

Download MODIS active fire data (MCD14DL) for the last 24, 48 hours and 7 days in shapefile, KML, WMS or text file formats.

For data older than the last 7 days, use the Archive Download Tool to extract fire locations; the tool provides near real-time (NRT) data and, as it becomes available (usually after 2 months), it is replaced with data extracted from the standard MCD14ML fire product.

SHP

Regions for ShapefilesDownload shape files of MODIS active fire data for the last 24 and 48 hours, and 7 days. For more information, please see the SHP README (PDF).

For data older than 7 days, use the Archive Download Tool.

KML

Google Earth showing KML 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.
