Title: Fact Sheet: Understanding Fire and Fire Behavior

Author: * Friederici, P.G.

Subject: Fire behavior

Abstract: Fire always obeys the laws of physics, and is always made up of three elements: fuel, oxygen, and heat. How it behaves on the landscape can be unpredictable. Yet people can, to an extent, shape how fire moves through a landscape, even one as large as southwestern ponderosa pine forests.
