Track where the fires are burning in Arizona in 2022

0

Updated July 26, 2022.

Arizona’s wildfire season, which kicked off early this year, could be even more catastrophic in 2022 than in previous years, fire officials said.

Arizona lost more than 500,000 acres to wildfires in 2021 and more than 900,000 acres in 2020, Gov. Doug Ducey said earlier this year.

Reports have predicted that most of the Southwest will have above normal fire potential in May and June, although wetter periods between September and December helped reduce fire potential in some areas. In Arizona, however, the risk of significant fire potential came earlier, starting in March.
