Two new videos on how wildfires spread

Weather Channel

The recent wildfires in the U.S., and California in particular, have generated significant public interest in fires, and how they spread and can (or can’t) be controlled.

Two great new videos, from the New York Times and Weather Channel respectively, and promoted by Wildfire Today, provide simple explanations for how wildfires ignite, spread and are suppressed.

While having a North American focus, the graphics used in the Weather Channel video especially allow viewers to see the role of the weather in affecting wildfire “like never before”.

In another posting, the National Fire Protection Association have produced a video on reducing the wildfire risk around your home which contains some great information that can be applied by New Zealand homeowners as well.
