Description: Occasionally a forest fire burns with an intensity that seems far out of proportion to apparent burning conditions. Sometimes it multiplies its rate of energy output many times in a short space of time. Although infrequent, these unusual fires have over a long period of time been responsible for the major loss of life in forest fires and a large part of the losses in property and forest values, Each blowup fire raises the question: What can we do to recognize conditions causing extreme fire behavior and how can we predict them in advance?
