Wildfires can't happen anywhere. Wildfires happen only when the air is dry and there are leaves, twigs and plenty of things for the fire to eat.

What Is a wild firE?

A wild fire is a uncontrollable fire. It spreads very quickly and is dangerous!

  • Smoking is biggest cause of home fires. Heating objects such as a lighter etc is the second most common cause of home fires. Arson and intentional fires are another cause of human home fires. Most of these fires happen outside but most of the deaths and injuries occur in homes.
  • 90 percent of wildfires in the United States are caused by humans. Some human caused fires are from campfires left unattended, burning of debris, discarded cigarettes and intentional acts of arson. 10 percent are started by lightning or lava.
