We are interested in using a dataset created by a fire lab. The data is in ARC BIL format. Is there a way to convert this into netCDF?

You might try the Raster to netCDF tool in ArcView.

GDAL supports both netCDF and BIL (according to: http://www.gdal.org/frmt_various.html). If you are looking for an open source solution, this seems to be a good way to go.

Note though that NetCDF support in GDAL is optional, and not compiled in by default.
