These counties have a high urban population, but they are distinguished from other urban counties by their relatively few ignitions and low area burned. This low fire occurrence reflects a combination of cultural and environmental factors. Note that several counties in this group occur in the Northeast that historically are in Fire Regime Group V, but several others fall in the wetter parishes of Louisiana.
Example of a Typical County — West Baton Rouge, Louisiana: This well-populated Louisiana parish lies adjacent to Baton Rouge and includes wet bottomland forests.
