Wildfires in California continue to grow, prompting evacuations in all across the state. Here’s a look at the latest wildfires in California on September 12. The first section of this story shows interactive maps for the state and the second section provides updates on specific fires.
Here’s what you need to know:
Interactive Maps of California Fires
A number of interactive fire maps can help you stay updated on the latest details about California fires. Don’t rely on just one map, since details can change quickly. If you live near a fire, stay tuned to your local media.
A good interactive map to follow is from Inciweb, “an interagency all-risk incident information management system.” You can see the full map here. There’s an embeddable Google Map that includes Inciweb fires, which you can see below and also here. Depending on your browser, you may need to zoom into the map below using the + button within the map or go to the “Layers” dropdown box and turn off everything but Wildfire Preparedness and Inciweb Wildfire Information. Inciweb fires are not always the same as wildfires reported on by Cal Fire, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
Another helpful interactive map is provided here from Ca.gov.
A interactive fire map is below, provided by the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. You may need to click “OK” before you can view the map to indicate you’re not using it as an evacuation resource. The map below is one of the more detailed fire maps for California.
The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services also has an interactive map of red flag warnings and new and active fires. This map is updated every weekday morning, so it’s not always the best for emergency planning but is still informative.
Mapping Support also provides a map of red flag warning areas and current wildfires. They note: “Zoom in, click red area and follow link for official details. See 2 links upper left corner.” This is satellite hotspot data, so it shouldn’t be used for evacuation planning. View the full map here.
Nevada County has a map of California fires below and Red Flag warnings below.

List of Active Fires in California on September 12, 2020
This alphabetized list was updated for September 12. The information on many of these fires will also include who you can follow for the latest updates. Fires that are 100% contained, even if technically still active, may be removed from this list.
August Complex Fire (including Doe) & August Complex North Zone (including Elkhorn and Hopkins)
This fire complex is in Elk Creek and Stonyford areas in Mendocino County. It was started by lightning on August 17 and is now 875,059 acres in size according to Inciweb and 25% contained as of September 12 at 1:33 p.m. The fire complex started out as 37 individual fires across the Mendocino National Forest. Many have since been contained or merged. The fire’s size has grown in part because it’s now split into three zones: South, North, and West. South is the Dove fire that was previously just the August Complex and it’s 498,202 acres and 25% contained as of September 12.
Inciweb noted on September 11 that this is the largest fire in California history. A number of evacuation zones are still in place.
Inciweb’s South Zone update for September 12 includes: “The August Complex has grown to 875,059 acres and is listed as the largest fire in California history (this includes 28,247 acres on the west zone managed by CAL Fire). The South Zone is now 498,202 acres and 25 percent contained. Smoke cleared on parts of the fire Friday and helicopters assisted crews with water drops on hot spots around the fire. Saturday, crews will continue to clear fuels and prepare around structures near Lake Pillsbury and in the communities near Eel River and Bauer Ridge. Authorization has been given to utilize a decommissioned road within the Yuki Wilderness and resources will enter the area as necessary for fire suppression. Fire resources are coordinating with CAL FIRE Team 5 on the West Zone.”
Inciweb has a separate listing for the North Zone here and a map below.
Here’s a West Zone update:

This fire is in Tuolumne County (Stanislaus National Forest), in the Emigrant Wilderness east of Pinecrest. It was started by lightning and is 50 acres in size as of September 10, located 2 miles east of Crabtree Trailhead and 1.5 miles southeast of Gianelli Trailhead.
Blue Jay Fire (and Wolf Fire)
This fire was started by lightning on July 24 and it’s now 3,152 acres in size and 20% contained as of September 12. It’s located 4 miles south of White Wolf Campground and one mile west of Lukens Lake Trail.
See an official map of the fire here.
In order to maintain the health and safety of park visitors and employees, and to allow fire management operations to continue unimpeded, the Superintendent of Yosemite National Park is closing the Lukens Lake- Yosemite Creek and Yosemite Creek Campground trails from Tioga road to the north rim of Yosemite Valley…
The fire is burning through ground litter on the forest floor and in pockets of accumulated dead and down logs with some isolated single tree torching.
The Blue Jay Fire is being managed with a confine and contain suppression strategy utilizing minimum impact suppression techniques within fire adapted Wilderness.
This fire is northeast of Cogswell Reservoir in Los Angeles County, near San Gabriel Canyon. (Inciweb notes it’s located near Cogswell Dam and West Fork Day Use area.) The fire started on September 6. In the last update from Inciweb on September 12, it was 29,245 acres and 6% contained. Just a few days earlier it was 11,000 acres and 0% contained. The cause is under investigation.
And another map of the rough location from FireMappers below.
Inciweb noted on September 12:
Fire crews will continue to focus on increasing containment lines along the south end of the fire to protect the foothill communities. Throughout the day, heavy fire activity will continue to be seen on both the south and north ends. The eastern portion of the fire is burning downhill and entering into a burn scar from the Ranch2 Fire, creating less intense fire behavior for firefighters. Much of the western side of the fire is entering an old burn scar as well, which reduces the rate of spread. Steep terrain and dry fuels, some of which haven’t burned in the last 60 years, will create challenges for crews. Local fire departments will continue to conduct structure protection within the foothill communities. Crews will also be working on the north end to keep the fire south of Highway 2 and west of Highway 39…
Evacuation warnings are in effect for Monrovia, Arcadia, Bradbury, Sierra Madre, Altadena, Duarte and Pasadena. At this time, no Evacuation Orders in these communities have been issued—however, it’s important to stay well-informed as this is an evolving incident. An Evacuation Order has been issued for Camp Williams.

Some evacuation orders are in place.
Inciweb noted on September 12:
Based on reduced fire activity, fire suppression strategy on the Slater and Devil Fires yesterday changed from structure and utility protection only to a larger perimeter containment strategy. After an infrared heat detection flight last night, Team 10 was able to confirm that the total footprint of the fire was smaller than first estimated using satellite and data from ground troops.
Along the Slater Fire’s northwestern side in Del Norte County, the focus remained on point protection yesterday, primarily along Highway 199 from Gasquet to the Collier Tunnel. The fire is currently hung up at Oregon Mountain Road and backing into Knopki Creek, so there is currently little movement along the southwestern edge in this area. The Gasquet Ranger District’s (Six Rivers National Forest) Smith River Hotshots have been assigned to the Slater Fire.
On the south end of the Slater Fire, favorable weather conditions slowed fire activity significantly yesterday and overnight. However, the initially hot and fast-moving fire weakened trees in the burn area. Falling snags along Highway 96, some of them very large, pose a risk to firefighters and anyone else nearby.
Firing operations will begin today along the Slater Fire’s eastern edge to protect structures in the Thompson Creek area, while scouts look for opportunities to contain and control fire spread down river where the fire is approaching Highway 96. Firefighters are working to assess and implement structure protection in the Highway 96 corridor, and to protect road access on the highway.
