Beginning Daily Coverage

Starting today (a few days earlier than I meant) I will begin daily coverage of fire stats and news stories.

Today is significant. Today, after what looked like it was going to be the start of possibly a slow fire season, we passed the 10 year averages on acres burned. Interesting, though, is the total fires to date is lower than the 10 year average, which means the fires are burning more acreage.

June 28, 2004 217,630 acres burned

2004 YTD 1,310,425
10 yr ave 1,231,417


2004 ytd 37,491
10 yr ave 41,782
