We here in Sheridan, and around Wyoming may think we’ve been hit pretty hard with fires this year. For 2007 we are at 13 incidents total, three of which have been contained for a total involved acreage as of the time I write this of 52,685.

Compare this with our neighbor to the north, Montana, which is at 28 incidents with a total of 550,426 acres and 6 listed as contained.

Or consider Idaho, which has 24 incidents with 5 contained for a total of 1,634,101 acres.
