I’ve been interested in fire acreages since the discussion of the black-backed woodpecker habitat.
I ran across this story this AM. It sounded like the Beaver Creek fire was 85 square miles. That seems pretty big to me. But then at the end of the story they talked about the Pony Complex (229 square miles).
So naturally I got curious about all of the current acreages.Here is a great NIFC site that tells you many things you might want to know. What I thought was interesting was that this year at this date, we seem to have a lot fewer wildfire acres than in past years. I wonder if I am reading this wrong?
Also the Beaver Creek link seems to be broken, I wonder if it got subsumed into another fire?
