Fire in Nature
Fire can occur naturally. One rather common example is a wildfire.
A wildfire is any uncontrolled, non-structure fire that occurs in the wilderness. The name wildfire was Greek for any furious or destructive conflagration. They are often considered beneficial to the wilderness because many plant species are dependent on the effects of fire, for growth and reproduction. However that depends on the size of the fire. Nine out of ten wildfires are reported to be caused by some humans.
Causes are numerous and include lightning, arson, volcanic activity, pyroclastic clouds, campfire mishaps, and underground coal fires . Although most causes are by natural causes there are people who are either accidently or pourposfully set fire to the wilderness.
Basic ways to prevent forest fires is to be careful. Never leave a fire unattended. And remember that forest fires caused by arson is punishable by law.
