Without fire such ecosystems would become sterile monocultures. Recent efforts to prohibit fire in fire dependent communities have contributed to more intense and more 3/5(1). Why Forest-Killing Megafires Are The New Normal Woodland forest fires are burning with such power and size, no one can remember anything like it. The problem with fires of this intensity is that.
In the summer of , a large number of wildfires (primarily forest fires) occurred throughout much of ing to the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, they are the most serious in the country in modern history.
