The National Interagency Coordination Center at NIFC compiles annual wildland fire statistics for federal and state agencies.This information is provided through Situation Reports, which have been in use for several decades. Prior to 1983, sources of these figures are not known, or cannot be confirmed, and were not derived from the current situation reporting process. As a result the figures prior to 1983 should not be compared to later data.
