NPR reports on a neat tool from KPCC that lets you track the status of the many wildfires currently burning in California.

Our colleagues from Northern California's KQED are following the Rim Fire closely — in their News Fix blog and on a multimedia "Fire Tracker" designed by Southern California's KPCC. We'll embed the "graphic summary of the blaze," which is a good gateway to the coverage.

A small version of the Fire Tracker tool is embedded above. But for the full experience, you must check out this page. These fires are a disaster and causing a lot of harm, but this is a beautiful and very helpful way to share some key information in an easily digestible way. Bravo.
