Wildfires - Environmental Statistics
National Interagency Fire Center Wildfire Statistics 1960-2012
Below, as an embedded file, are the numbers of fires and the total acres burned during the past 52 years. This file may take a moment to open, but statistics buffs will enjoy the numbers for further analysis and to look at various possible correlations. Are fewer fires burning more acres? Are there trends in fire frequency from decade to decade? What might be the cause of these trends? These are some of the possible questions when looking at this data.
