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

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).
