Current Wildfire Information

The North Carolina Forest Service tracks daily fire activity using a database known as the "Signal 14". The data from the Signal 14 is a rapid approximation of wildfire occurrence. It's not an exact count. This information does not include uncontained fires or fires that occur on federal property. The information below comes from Signal 14 reports.
