This dataset contains wildfire point locations for the current fire season. This includes both active and inactive fires. Data is supplied through various sources and is updated from the operational systems every two hours. These points are rolled over to Historical Fire Points on April 1 of each year.

Wildfire data may not reflect the most current fire situation and therefore should only be used for reference purposes. Wildfire data is refreshed when practicable and individual fire update frequency will vary. The information is intended for general purposes only and should not be relied on as accurate because fires are dynamic and circumstances may change quickly.

This data is sourced internally from the BC Wildfire Service and is not available for download at this time. For publicly available data please see http://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/fire-locations-current
