April, 2018. A new report measuring communities threatened by wildfire from 2000-2017 was released by Headwaters Economics, co-founder of the CPAW program. The report finds that more than 3,000 communities had a wildfire of 100+ acres burn within ten miles of town. At least 1,100 communities experienced a major wildfire event (greater than 1,000 acres in size) within ten miles, and nearly 850 communities experienced a 100+ acre wildfire that burned less than 700 feet from town. The report includes an interactive map tool and sortable data table.
