Incident Information -- Northwest Large Fire Information Summary

A Large Fire as defined by the National Wildland Coordinating Group, is any wildland fire in timber 100 acres or greater, and 300 acres or greater in grasslands/rangelands, or has an Incident Management Team assigned to it.

Information received from the National ICS-209 incident reporting database for large fires is updated each morning, and shows what has been reported by the Incident Commander the previous day at 7:00 PM. Information shown for each fire incident on the current day may not reflect changes made since the previous days ICS-209 input.

The Large Fire Information Summary and The Large Fire Map are currently experiencing technical issues. For the latest Fire Information, see the NWCC Blog at www.nwccinfo.blogspot.com. We hope to have the issues resolved as soon as possible.
