2013 Wildfire Season

2013 Wildfire Season Information and Resources 

Map produced by Predictive Services National Interagency Coordination Center

Drought, extreme heat, lightening, disease, and human error have all contributed to the 2013 wildfire season.  For many states a continuation of the drought has led to an increase in the number and scope of wildfires thus far this year.  The  Services National Interagency Coordination Center has produced fire potential maps through October and below is the July map.  As the drought has been shifting west, so has the potential for wildfires.
