Full series of wildfire acres burned in the United States as published by the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The NIFC highlight that 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. This full series is used for discussion purposes only.
