Wildfire crowning with tall flames in a forest of conifers.

Selected Wildfires

Each selected wildfire analyzed burned more than 1,000 acres of forestland (land that grows trees) on national forest in California. For each fire there is a summary table of the vegetation conditions; an image of the fire overlaid on a quadrangle map with the image highlighting the fire boundary and burned areas that are non forest, forested and deforested; and a pdf of the fire for download which also provides a clearer view of the fire.
