Fire Tally

Have you ever wanted to know how much of Alaska has burned since 2004?

The charts in this tool compare the current year’s daily tally of acres burned to high fire years (> 1 million acres burned) since daily tally records began in 2004.

You can see tallies of Alaska acreage burned daily statewide, by fire protection area, and by year.

A map of fire protection areas is available, and you can choose a date range within Alaska’s traditional fire season (April 1–Sept 16).

Graphic downloads available.
