Fire Updates

New Interactive Map and Timeline of 2015 Pacific Northwest Fire Season Available Online

The Pacific Northwest Region of the U.S. Forest Service is pleased to release a new interactive story map detailing the historic 2015 fire season in the Pacific Northwest. This was designed to tell the complete story of the fire season’s key events through a visual and interactive narrative timeline in a geospatial format.

The 2015 fire season was the most severe in the Pacific Northwest’s modern history, with Oregon and Washington experiencing more than 3,800 wildfires that burned more than 1.6 million acres. The Forest Service commissioned this narrative summary to capture the full story, not only for historical purposes, but also to help the agency and the public continue to learn from past experiences and prepare for future fire seasons.

In the face of changing climate and longer, more expensive fire seasons, the Forest Service is committed to working collaboratively with our partners to ensure communities are prepared and resilient.

Both the interactive story map and the full narrative summary are available online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/r6/fire-aviation.
