Pan and zoom in on Palomar Mtn. The orange areas are a composite of mapped fires in this dataset, and one will see the extensive fire footprint on Palomar Mtn over time. Click on the ‘i within a circle’ button up top, move the cursor to a specific location and click on it.

A window opens leading one to the fire records for that specific location. Click into a fire record and a yellow overlay shows the extent of that specific mapped fire. This resource says it goes back to 1950 fire maps but for Palomar Mtn, I see fires mapped back to 1917 [at least].
