Forest Fire

Forest Fire is an uncontrolled fire occurring in nature naturally or due to human interruption or any other disturbances caused by the nature, which may or may not be supressed by artificial means of control. A forest fire is an uncontrolled fire occurring in nature. Sometimes, the forest fire is so large that it takes a long time for the fire fighting crews to gain control over the situation. This could result in massive destruction. The number of forest fires varies from year to year, and quite a long time may elapse between forest fires that are considered to be large. Climatic conditions are the factor that has greatest impact on the extent of forest fires. The forest is most vulnerable in spring and summer seasons when there are long dry spells. Weather conditions such as precipitation and wind, as well as the layout of the terrain, are important factors in determining the size of the forest fire.
