Fire Information

Finding the Most Current Fire Information

When fires happen on the Boise National Forest, the Public Affairs Officer or Incident Public Information Officer will typically try to notify the public via the Boise Forest Facebook account as soon as information is available. 

Additionally, information will be posted to the state-wide Idaho Fire Info website at As a fire incident evolves, it may be listed on either Inciweb and Idaho Fire Info.  

Idaho Fire Info is a one stop shop for fires in Idaho and has current fire information and fire restrictions for the state.  This page is a joint effort by county, state, and federal land management agencies to provide timely, updated fire information in one location. 

Inciweb is great tool for researching large current incidents. Incidents on InciWeb are typically wildland fires, but the site will also host incidents when responding to natural disaster cleanup, search and rescue/recovery efforts, hurricane/tornado recovery or assisting other countries with manmade or natural disasters.  This site serves as a single source of incident related information and is managed by Incident Management Teams or local public information officers.
