These western interior rangeland counties are typically demographically advantaged and experience a larger area burned. Homes are concentrated in communities. Communities lie near large, natural landscapes that are non-forested.
Example of a Typical County — Cochise County, Arizona: Cochise County is east of Tucson. Particularly large fires have occurred on the forested mountain ranges, as experienced in 2012.
