“Hotspot” maps like this, which are created with hourly NASA satellite imaging, pinpoint areas of high heat. They can be helpful for emergency responders but confusing and panic inducing for residents ​— ​the colored squares and circles don’t always represent flames and could simply be warm, dense smoke columns or other “false positive” anomalies in the data.
