People still think forest fires are bad and expect the government to try to stamp them out, even in remote wilderness areas. Hanson has made himself a thorn in the side of state and federal agencies, pestering and sometimes suing them. But gradually, they have begun to acknowledge that burned forests must be viewed as special places.

Hanson studied under Malcolm North, a Forest Service scientist who also holds a position at the University of California, Davis - but the two men have come to disagree.

Forest fires are among the deadliest happenings in nature. With this article, we hope to shed some light on the causes and effects of forest fires. Any fire that spreads uncontrollably over an expanse of vegetation or forest cover in the wild is called a forest fire. It generally occurs when the vegetation and forest cover in an area are completely dried out due to a heat wave or a drought. When out of control, they can cause extensive damage to not only the forest cover, but also to human life and the environment.
