“Forest fires can often start in the most innocuous of circumstances, sometimes from a casually discarded item which sets one tree alight and subsequently spreads to cover an enormous area. They are also triggered by weather conditions such as unseasonable heat and high winds, a combination of which can lead to entire forests being engulfed within hours. Not only do these disasters cause devastation to land and forestry; they can also claim hundreds of innocent lives, not least those of courageous firefighters who give their lives trying to save others.”

When I click on the image it takes me to a sawmills site. I’d like to see it bigger, as I live in wildfire territory. Last year we lost 300 000 hectares to wildfires in our province. Scary times, these hot summers!
