Wildfires in the state of Michigan are generally underestimated in regard to number and losses. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources estimates that 8,000 to 10,000 wildfires occur each year in this state. While most of these are small wildfires - burning between 5 and 50 acres—many wildfires exceed 100 acres and some have consumed thousands of acres. In addition, each year 100 to 200 homes and buildings are either lost or damaged due to wildfires. Because most wildfires are caused by human activities, the number of wildfires and losses can be reduced if residents would take more precautions.
