LOS ANGELES COUNTY FIRE HISTORY

Southern California is famous as a place filled with palm trees, beautiful beaches, the entertainment industry and…wildfires. The majority of the southern portion of the state is comprised of chaparral – dry terrain covered mostly in highly flammable brush that’s actually evolved to burn. In fact, the ecosystem relies on fires for the regeneration and overall health of its varied plant and animal species. This wouldn’t be a problem if people hadn’t built cities in SoCal, but of course, that is not the case. Los Angeles is America’s second-largest city with 4 million people while Los Angeles County is by far the most populous county, with an astounding 9.4 million inhabitants.
Los Angeles and the surrounding area seem to be on fire every year, and that’s because, well, they, in fact are on fire every year. This map shows just how many fires have blazed through the city and surrounding communities, with hundreds on record from 1966 until 2017. Click on one to learn more.
