Understanding wildfire is an ever changing and complex topic. Not only are there two primary types of wildfire activity (terrain driven and wind driven), but understanding how weather, fuels, time of day, climate change, air quality, living conditions, road conditions, responder capabilities, etc. impact these fires is potentially a life long educational process.
