Lightning, burning campfires or cigarettes, hot winds, and even the sun can all provide sufficient heat to spark a wildfire.Although four out of five wildfires are started by people, nature is usually more than happy to help fan the flames.

In California wildfires are often made worse by the hot, dry Santa Ana winds, which can carry a spark for miles.Firefighters fight wildfires by depriving them of one or more of the fire triangle fundamentals. Firefighters also fight wildfires by deliberately starting fires in a process called controlled burning. These prescribed fires remove undergrowth, brush, and ground litter from a forest, depriving a wildfire of fuel.Although often harmful and destructive to humans, naturally occurring wildfires play an integral role in nature.

And by burning through thick canopies and brushy undergrowth, wildfires allow sunlight to reach the forest floor, enabling a new generation of seedlings to grow.
