Google Earth Overlay of DSE Bushfire Updates in Victoria

Back in January 2006 some clueful person came up with the idea of creating a Google Earth overlay to monitor bushfires in Victoria.

It pulls in the latest image from the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) from their current incidents page about fires and overlays it on the satellite imagery.

Red circles are controlled fires, red stars are contained fires and red fires are “going” (i.e. not controlled or contained).
