Does anyone know of any good resources / up to date info and maps on past fires in the BWCA?

Looking specifically for information on the last 10-15 years. Have found a lot on 1900's but was really hoping for more up to date info.

Thanks in advance!

Here's some maps of 2 big recent ones

Pagami Creek also....even bigger

If you go to a different mapping site...they have these extents on their BWCA map so you can zoom in and pan around. PP is short version of it...usually can't get away with typing it here.

I found this map at
this website
I'm curious about the historic fire shown in the Crab/Cummings area and posted about it the other day in the Listening Point section.

If you own Voyageur Maps, pretty sure the fire lines are marked on them and labeled/dated
