Interactive Map: Wildfire Management and Drought

Drought is one of many factors that can affect the intensity and severity of a fire. Dry, hot, and windy weather combined with dried out (and more flammable) vegetation can increase the potential for large-scale wildfires. Use the interactive map below to explore wildfire, smoke, and air quality data alongside drought and climate conditions. Or, view a full-screen version of this map.
