Current Wildfires


Terms Defined

fiResponse-status_Active

ACTIVE

Any fire that has not been called "out".

fiResponse-status_CONTAINED

CONTAINED

The status of a wildfire suppression action signifying that a control line has been completed around the fire, and any associated spot fires, which can reasonably be expected to stop the fire's spread.

fiResponse-status_CONTROLLED

CONTROLLED

The completion of control line around a fire, any spot fires therefrom, and any interior islands to be saved; burned out any unburned area adjacent to the fire side of the control lines; and cool down all hotspots that are immediate threats to the control line, until the lines can reasonably be expected to hold under the foreseeable conditions.

fiResponse-status_FIRE OUT

FIRE OUT

The date when all observable combustion has ceased or there is no risk of the fire again becoming active and requiring additional control or management actions. All management activities directly relating to suppression (including mop-up), monitoring, or burning efforts have concluded; however, there may be secondary management efforts, such as burned area rehabilitation or hazard mitigation, still in process.
