As we enter prime wildfire season in the Western U.S., over the past several years, the United States has experienced successive record-breaking wildfires.
According to a new 2019 Wildfire Risk Hazard Report by CoreLogic, in 2018 alone, 8,767,492 acres burned, roughly equivalent to the area of 74 of the 75 largest cities in the United States combined. This is the sixth highest total since modern historical records began in the mid-1900s.
CoreLogic further reports that 2004 was the first time over 8 million acres burned in one year. During the next 14 years, more than 8 million acres burned annually another eight times, making nine of the last 14 years the highest annual totals of burned wildfire acreage.
