How could the people who accidentally started the Zaca Fire be charged with five felony counts of "recklessly causing a fire", but these ten not!!? Regardless of whether their specific fire started the Tea fire, they STILL recklessly STARTED A FIRE - as far as I understand, this is undisputed. Why wouldn't this be enough for felony charges to be brought? These misdemeanor are a joke and an insult to justice.

I believe that this already exists in the MODIS satellite:

You can see the updated data on these two sites:

You need Google Earth to view this

http://wildfire.cr.usgs.gov/fireplann...
You need to turn on these layers to see the detections:
Thermal WF-HMS - last 24 hrs
Thermal MODIS - last X hours

The caveat is that it can generate some false positives - there were two very close to my house during the tea fire.
