Fires

This is an estimate from the US Fire Administration (USFA) of all fires reported nationally, including wildfires and those in homes, buildings, and other structures.

The primary basis of the estimate is the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS), which has voluntary participation from all fifty states and Washington, DC. USFA believes that incident records submitted to NFIRS capture 75% of all reported fires. This statistic weights data from NFIRS accordingly in order to reach an approximate representation of all fires reported each year, while also incorporating other survey data to improve accuracy.
