Below are links to: 1) annual fire atlases with a year-end fire summary, 2) burn area maps for specific areas of the parks and 3) links to maps and information about currently active fires in the parks. Most maps are in JPG or Acrobat PDF format. If you can download the free Acrobat viewer from Adobe.
These maps and accompanying text show prescribed natural fires, suppressed lightning fires, human-caused wildfires, and planned and completed prescribed burns in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. A bar plot summarizing area burned annually with the Parks since 1968 when our prescribed fire program began is shown below.
