Google Maps + Fire Info = Google Fire

Australia is under a heatwave right now. The temperatures are soaring and bush fires are ravaging through people’s homes in Victoria. As of writing 35 people have died from these fires, which allegedy have been lit by arsonists.

Google has put together a mashup from google maps and the RSS feed from Country Fires Authority as to location, danger, and size of the fires. If yesterday was Google Ocean, then this must be Google fire!

Check out the map here.
