This dashboard summarizes recent trends in wildfire activity, based on data from the National Interagency Fire Center. The number of wildfires has remained relatively steady, but the acreage burned and average size of fires have increased. The state and regional graphics show that wildfire activity can vary considerably from year to year in a given location due to changing weather conditions. Learn more about the issue by checking out our wildfire page and PowerPoint deck.
