These twenty nine rural counties are united by their high ignitions, low area burned, and relatively stressed populations in an environment that is similar to that of the Central Plains. Outlying counties in eastern Washington, Arkansas and Missouri are similar to these Great Plains counties in these respects.
Example of a Typical County — Lubbock County, Texas: The stressed population of Lubbock adds to this county’s high ignitions, but the grassy fuels are flammable during the summer.
