Wyoming Fire Situation Report
The Wyoming State Forestry Division provides current information about status and active incidents in the state.
Epidemic outbreaks of native mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae; MPB) populations have affected over 1.6 million ha of predominantly lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) forests in Colorado and southern Wyoming since 1996. Policy makers, forest managers, and the public are concerned that resulting tree mortality will increase fire risk (probability of fire occurrence) and fire hazard (amount and configuration of flammable fuels, and resulting fire behavior), threatening communities in the wildland-urban interface, key watersheds, and recreation-based tourism for decades to come.
              from Effects of Mountain Pine Beetle on Fuels and Expected Fire Behavior in Lodgepole Pine Forests, Colorado, USA
One of the most visible effects of the MPB is the annuals summer fire season, fueled in large part from beetle killed trees. This archive is designed to help you find specific information by state or fire, and sign up for fire and other weather emergencies in your area.
