It takes three things to make a fire: Air, fuel, and ignition. Air we can do nothing about. Ignitions, such as lightning strikes, happen all the time. The only tool available to control the damage a fire can do is to manage the fuel.

With so much forest we should let it burn, there is no way to mitigate that much woodland. People can clear their properties but that does little when a fire 1/4 mile or 1/2 away is throwing embers onto windows and roofs. It is the windows and roofs where the fire gets in, especially windows.
