What causes a forest fire?

Humans and Wildfire. As many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by humans. Human-caused fires result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, negligently discarded cigarettes, and intentional acts of arson. Cigarettes are one way humans can cause fires.

What is the definition of a forest fire?

A forest fire is an uncontrolled fire occurring in nature. Sometimes, the forest fire is so large that it takes a long time for the fire fighting crews to gain control over the situation. This could result in massive destruction. In Norway, an average of about 1100 forest fires occur each year.
