Description: Following Hurricane Hugo, fuels were sampled on nine 2-acre blocks which were then burned during the spring wildfire season. The study was superimposed on dormant-season fire-interval research plots established in 1958 on the Francis Marion National Forest near Charleston, SC. Photographs of preburn fuel loads, fire behavior, and postburn fuel loads were taken to visually depict the fire intensity associated with differing hurricane generated fuel loads. These photo sequences enable the reader to compare actual fire behavior and consumption with preconceived mental images.
Keywords: South Carolina, fuel consumption
