Idaho Department of Lands Fire Management (IDL Fire) in partnership with two Timber Protection Associations and with the support of rural volunteer fire departments and other partners, are responsible for fire suppression and prevention on more than 6 million acres of state and private forests and rangelands in Idaho. IDL Fire focuses on initial attack with the goal of keeping fires at 10 acres or less. IDL Fire protects and preserves important endowment timber assets that help fund Idaho schools and other beneficiaries, as well as millions of acres of private forestland.
Humans, not lightning, are responsible for most wildfires. Escaped debris burning was one of the more prevalent causes.
Preparing your home for wildfire gives you the best odds of surviving in fire-prone wildland areas.
IDL Fire provides the latest information on active fires in IDL jurisdiction on our Fire News Feed.
Statewide Fire Map
This map prepared by our award-winning GIS team in conjunction with services provided by the Wildland Fire Interagency Geospatial Services Group is based on data from the Integrated Reporting of Wildland-Fire Information (IRWIN) system. Unlike other online fire information webpages or databases, such as Inciweb, which may only report on incidents that threaten structures or cover large acreages, this fire map displays information about all reported wildfires in Idaho.
