Cluster 2 - Western Rural

This cluster is characterized by low demographic advantage, mixed demographic stress, high area burned, low ignition density, a high Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Density, and a low WUI Area.

This area experiences a low number of ignitions, but more area burned. The cluster is a Western phenomena, as seen in the High Plains, which occurs across most landscapes, forests and rangelands. This is a non-urban area with Fire Regime Groups 1-4. The interface communities within this cluster have a small WUI footprint, but many homes are tightly concentrated surrounded by wildland vegetation. The largest threat is from fire directly moving towards these concentrated groups of homes.
