2023 Fire Year Outlook

Weather outlook for June to September calls for a cooler start to the summer with temperatures heating towards the end of June and hotter temperatures anomalies as the summer progresses.  There is a ninety percent likelihood of an El Nino developing by July.  The tropical disturbances typically associated with an El Nino pattern could lead to increased lightning and thunderstorm activity.  In the lower elevations a dense grass crop has developed. These grasses have started drying and will continue to dry out which may lead to an increased occurrence of initial attack fires. Due to the late rainy season, larger vegetation located in the mid and upper elevations will continue to experience above normal growth into the early summer months. The snowpack that remains in the mountain areas should assist with mitigating significant fire potential in the higher elevations until later in the summer.


incidents by year


Incident data is provided in raw, computer readable formats and requires further processing using specialized software. Two additional API parameters include year (values include a year in the YYYY format) and inactive (values include true and false). CAL FIRE doesn’t provide software development support at this time.


Information presented on the departments website is a representation of the existing wildfire situation, based on the information readily available to CAL FIRE. We make every effort to provide accurate and complete information, however the data is subject to review and change. This site provides general information concerning an incident. All of our information comes from the firelines and must be approved by the Incident Commander in charge of managing the incident prior to release. As battling a fire, or handling any other disaster is the priority, updates to these sites cannot be guaranteed on a set time schedule. Please use the information on these pages only as a reference. The sites are not meant to provide up-to-the-minute evacuation or fire behavior information. Please refer to the fire information phone numbers provided on this site, and website links for additional information, and monitor your local radio stations for emergency broadcasts. If you live in a wildland area always have an evacuation plan in place. Fires occur throughout the State within CAL FIRE jurisdiction on a daily basis during fire season. However, the majority of those fires are contained quickly and no information will generally be provided on these incidents at this site if the fire burns less than 10 acres. If you would like to obtain information about a CAL FIRE fire burning in your area that is not included on this web site, please contact the CAL FIRE Unit that services your county.
