- NOTE: Due to a technical reporting error, the Incident Management Situation Report posted Friday morning, October 9, showed the cumulative acres burned in 2015 at 11.2 million acres. This error was quickly caught and corrected, but not before several media outlets picked it up and reported that a record number of acres burned this year. The correct acreage as of October 9 is 9,276,416, making 2015 one of only four years since 1960 to see more than 9 million acres burn, but still short of the 9.8 million acres burned in 2006. Other years topping the 9 million acre mark are 2007, 2012 and 2015.
