Wildfire map: Track where fires are burning in Arizona in 2022

Updated May 12, 2022.
Arizona's wildfire season, which started early this year, could be even more catastrophic in 2022 than in previous years, fire officials said.
Arizona lost over 500,000 acres to wildfires in 2021 and over 900,000 acres in 2020, Gov. Doug Ducey said earlier this year.
Reports have predicted that most of the South West will experience above average fire risk in May and June, although wetter spells between September and December have helped reduce fire risk for certain areas. In Arizona, however, the risk of significant fire potential materialized earlier, beginning in March.
Below is a map of the fires actively burning in Arizona as compiled by the wildfire tracking website InciWeb, maintained by the U.S. Forest Service is operated. It will be updated during fire season.
