Map Layer Information: Previous Year Fires

A large fire incident that occurred in a previous year fire season will be displayed in the specific year Fires layer.

This layer displays point data for large nonactive fire incidents that have been entered into the NIFC Oracle database maintained in Kansas City.  This database is updated every morning, and includes (or provides links to) information such as fire name, percent contained, latitude and longitude coordinates, event ID, size (in acres), start date, reporting date, priority, personnel committed, general location, estimated damage, estimated cost, and cause.
