DescriptionForest fire occurrence data for individual protection units generally are unavailable outside particular state organization. Number of fires, area protected and fire occurrence rate (fires per 1,000,000 acres) from 1966 to 1975, are presented in tables for the 993 counties under protection in 13 southern states. These data are compared with data for the preceeding decade (1956-1965). A map shows the geographical distribution of fire occurrence rates as very low, low, moderate, high or very high.
