Zip Code & Town/City information pulled from FreeMapTools – Find ZIP Codes Inside a Radius

Mile radius size reference points: 10 mile radius covers about 314 sq miles, 20 mile radius covers about 1,257 sq miles, 25 mile radius covers about 1,963 sq miles, and 30 mile radius covers about 2,827 sq miles.

Acreage size reference points: 1 football field = about 1.3 acres; 640 acres = 1 sq mile;
12,800 acres = 20 sq miles; 32,000 acres = 50 sq miles; 96,000 acres = 150 sq miles; 320,000 acres = 500 sq miles; 480,000 acres = 750 sq mile.

Note about size reference points – fires rarely burn in nice even circles, therefore these reference points are general guides and the shape of the fire perimeter must be taken into account (e.g. a fire burn area may be significantly less than the 1,257 sq miles covered by a 20 mile radius yet extend beyond the 20 mile radius because the burn area is long but narrow).
