How did the 416 Fire get its name? We've had several questions about this. The number comes from the Durango Interagency Dispatch Center on the San Juan National Forest. It is a system-generated number, and each number represents an "incident" or dispatch. An incident can be anything from a false alarm to a red flag warning to an actual fire. So, the number 416 does not represent this being the 416th fire this year, but rather it is the 416th "incident" in the SJNF this calendar year.
