A cloud of smoke billows above the trees, the sound of crackling flames echoes through the forest, and the siren of a fire engine blares in the distance. It’s front page news―a wildfire burns out of control. Whether ignited by lightning or a careless camper, wildfires can cause devastating effects to the environment. They can spread quickly, especially when aided by gusting winds or dry conditions. Although firefighters have developed ways to manage, contain, and even predict these outdoor blazes, new methods are needed to keep up with the growing threat of wildfires. Headline Science uses news stories and everyday applications to explain the science behind wildfires.
