Here is a Sit Rep of wildfire activity in forests across the State of California. This Sit Rep is for the days of February 23 – 26, 2021 from the various dispatch centers.

According to the National Interagency Coordination Center, more commonly known as the NIFC prepares a daily SIT REP for those Fire managers from the various U.S. Regions who report in wildfire activity in their areas. This does not include CAL FIRE or any County agency but mostly Forest Services areas.

‘There were 362 new wildfires that required light fire activity across the U.S. with eight of those being new large incidents in Texas, Oklahoma and Arizona.”
