Today's Fire Danger is

The forecasted Fire Danger Rating for Today is MODERATE

 

 

Fires can start from most accidental causes but, with the exception of lightning fires in some areas, (which are rare on Long Island), the number of starts is generally low. Fires in open cured grasslands will burn briskly and spread rapidly on windy days. Timber fires spread slowly to moderately fast. The average fire is of moderate intensity, although heavy concentrations of fuel, especially draped fuel, may burn hot. Short-distance spotting may occur, but is not persistent. Fires are not likely to become serious and control is relatively easy.

 This fire danger level is indicated by the color blue along with the word MODERATE on fire danger signs.

  

 

DEC Seeks Public Assistance to Combat Recent Outbreak of Pine Barrens Forest Fires

Following the occurrence of five forest fires on Federal, State, Suffolk County and private lands since mid-April, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Forest Rangers are working with Suffolk County, Brookhaven, Riverhead fire marshals, and Brookhaven National Lab firefighters to deploy new technologies to investigate the potential source/s of these incidents.

State and local officials are asking anyone with knowledge of these fires to contact DEC's Office of Public Protection at (518) 408-5858 or the Suffolk County, Brookhaven, or Riverhead fire marshal's offices.

Besides damaging habitat, uncontrolled fires have the potential to impact nearby residences and pose a risk to volunteer firefighters.

In total the five fires have burned approximately 167 acres in Long Island's Pine Barrens region.
