' This is a compilation of forest fire statistics covering the Calendar
Year 1948 as reported to the United States Forest Service by its field
offices, cooperating States, and the Department of the Interior, Soil
Conservation Service and Tennessee Valley Authority.

The figures are shown separately by the individual States reporting and
totals are also given for certain geographical groups of States. The
tabulation is prepared in the following sections:

SUMMARY OF FOREST FIRE STATISTICS FOR 1948
a Giving areas needing protection; areas protected and
S0 unprotected; number of fires, area burned, and esti-
2 mated damage to both protected and unprotected forest .s-
S"lands (Pages 1 to 4).

NUMBER OF FOREST FIRES BY CAUSE AND SIZE
b j j For protected areas only (Pages 5 to 8).

AREAS BURNED AND ESTIMATED DAMAGE
For protected areas only (Pages 9 to 12).

The statistics shown are as complete as could be compiled from reports
submitted by State and Federal protection agencies but no claim is made
as to their completeness or accuracy.

Since no field organizations are established in unprotected areas to re-
port fires, the statistics on such unprotected areas are merely the
best estimates by the States. They are likewise incomplete as no esti-
mates could be obtained for Arizona, Nebfaska, North Dakota and Wyoming.

The estimates on fire damage should be used with caution. They admitted-
ly are low because they fail to include the full and complete tang-
ible and direct damage to timber and improvements as well as the vast
amount of intangible and indirect losses resulting from forest fires,
such as those caused by decay of fire damaged timber, replacement of
desirable tree species by less valuable ones, soil deterioration and
erosion, uncertain streamflow, destruction of game, interruption of
tourist use and travel, and the like.

SUMMARY OF 1948 WEATHER AND FIRE SITUATIONS


Region 1 Comprising Montana and.northern Idaho.

Favorable spring season, precipitation above normal except in few isolated
spots east of Continental Divide. Fire losses below five-year average.
Fire season generally easiest on record. However, September and October
dry and some difficulty experienced with hunter and brush burning fires.

Region 2 Comprising Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyroing .

Hot weather and deficiency in precipitation in early spring caused hazardous
situation during forepart of fire season. During late May through June and
early July abundant precipitation greatly reduced danger. Extremely dry
conditions in late summer and fall brought on the worst fire danger experi-
enced at any time during past ten years. These conditions prevailed alike
in Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota.

Region 3 Comprising Arizona and New Mexico.

Arizona season marked by extreme length, severity and high winds during
spring months, May to July 15. Summer rains light. Fires continued through
fall months to December 1. Many more hunters' fires than usual. Large
fires caused heavy damages to timber and watersheds in late June and early
July.

In New Mexico drouth conditions continued during 1948 season. Summer rains
light except for Santa Fe and Carson areas. Smokejumpers held down losses
on Gila National Forest. High winds above normal in May, June and early
July created extreme hazards. Season extended long beyond normal through
late summer and fall months to November 15.

Region 4 Comprising Utah, Nevada, southern Idaho and western Wyoming.

June and early July conditions throughout Utah, Idaho and Nevada favorable
with considerable spring storms except for isolated areas. Late July,
August and most of September extremely dry. Utah and Nevada recorded the
5th driest July since Weather Bureau records kept. Southern Idaho experi-
enced extremely hot, dry and windy conditions throughout August and up to
mid-September. Rainfall less than half normal during September in Utah.
During latter part of August and up to mid-September States got extra period
brush fires that gave much trouble resulting in larger suppression job than
had experienced for years, particularly in Utah, where burned area about
doubled previous year.

Region 5 Comprising California.

Early months unusually dry, followed by favorable fire season from March
through August with less than average fire load. Extremely dangerous fire
weather developed in September resulting in sharply increased fire load


-13-







and several major fires in southern part of State. Critical period extend-
ed through November becoming extremely critical and resulting in one
45,000 aore fire.

Region 6 Comprising Oregon and Washington.

Season most unusual. 1948 will be remembered as year of the "big flood"
and "year without a summer." Spring fire season very favorable. Pre-
cipitation far above normal. Early season fire losses below average.
Short period of critical fire weather in June. Remainder of summer un-
usually oeol and damp. Critical fire weather first three weeks in Sep-
tember. Heavy rains ended fire season latter part of September. Number
of fires and acreage burned on S&P lands lowest on record for Oregon.
Number of fires on SAP lands lowest for Washington and acreage burned
second lowest on record. Acreage burned on National Forest lands lowest
on record and number of fires lowest since 1912.

Region 7 Comprising Connecticut, Delaxare. Kentucky. Maine, Maryland,.
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York., Pennsyl-
vania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.

1948 fire season favorable as any on record. Well distributed rainfall
during spring months kept losses to minimum. Rainfall became subnormal
about August 1 in New England and drouth approached that of 1947 except
that vegetation still green. Serious late fall fires in Kentucky and
West Virginia. Governor closed New Hampshire woods September 15 October
9. Brief September closures also made in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Region 8 Comprising Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia. Louisiana.
Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennes-
