InciWeb the Incident Information System

InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system. The system was developed with two primary missions:

Provide the public with a single source of incident-related information
Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community
Learn how to use and navigate around InciWeb with this support guide.

A number of supporting systems automate the delivery of incident information to remote sources. This ensures that the information regarding active incidents is consistent, and the delivery is timely.


InciWeb Information | National Interagency Fire Center

InciWeb, the Incident Information System, is an interagency website that provides ‘one-stop shopping’ for incident information to internal and external audiences. It’s primarily used for wildfires, prescribed fires and fire-related incidents. InciWeb is a source for incident and contact information, news releases, closure information, photos, maps and videos for incidents that occur in federal, state, tribal and local jurisdictions.


Public Fire Information Websites | US Forest Service

It is a web-based interface that allows you to learn information about an incident geospatially. In other words, you can find the wildfire you are interested in on the map, click it and learn things like size; containment; ownership; perimeter; hot spots; historical fire occurrence; fire weather, etc.

InciWeb – Wikipedia

The original application was hosted at the United States Forest Service – Wildland Fire Training and Conference Center, at McClellan Airfield, California, comprising three servers:

  • Database server
  • Administrative server
  • Load balancer for the public content which routes traffic to a pool of eight servers.

Web traffic averages 2 million-plus hits daily during the fire season with the ability to handle 3.5 million hits.


Inciweb | Arizona Interagency Wildfire Prevention

InciWeb is an interagency system that tracks high-visibility, high-complexity or long duration incidents.

The agency and incident management team for the incident is responsible for initiating and maintaining information on InciWeb. Incident information includes photographs, maps, overviews, announcements and closures as needed.


Incident Information System

The Twentyfive Mile fire, located 12 miles northwest of Chelan, WA, remains at 22,117 acres, with 62% containment, and 48 personnel assigned to the incident. Post firework, including road repair and rehabilitation of bulldozer constructed fire suppression lines, is occurring. The area closure remains in effect, has been recently updated and will be re-evaluated in mid-October.  Due to the large burned area and road repair, hunters should plan their upcoming hunt outside of the Twenty-five Mile closure area and roads.


Accessibility friendly view

This table exists to help users with screen reading assistive technology or other accessibility needs work around the map-based design and navigation of InciWeb. The table below contains all active incidents that are displayed on the map ordered by most recently updated. The table can be ordered in ascending or descending order by incident, type, state or size by clicking the column name. To filter the table by a word or phrase (ie. specific incident or state), enter the word in the search box above the table and press enter or click the search icon to apply the filter. Click on a hyperlinked incident name to view the detailed information page for that incident.


KNP Complex

While the KNP Complex does not pose any threats to life or property at this time, NPS fire managers have observed areas of fire activity and smoke in the interior of the fire footprint and determined that they are mainly coming from islands of unburned fuels and heavy logs that continue to be consumed. If the ongoing pattern of extremely dry weather continues, smoke west of Castle Rocks and north of Paradise Ridge may be visible from areas along Highway 198 approaching Sequoia National Park, and on the north end of the fire, smoke may be visible from portions of Highway 180 that look towards Redwood Canyon.
