Savage Earth Out of the Inferno

A pyroclastic flow is an avalanche of ground-hugging hot rock accompanied by a cloud of ash and gas that races down the slope of a volcano. The flow can reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, and temperatures of nearly 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Pyroclastic flows cause more death and destruction than any other volcanic hazard.

Wildfires Field Trip Intro

This was thought to be the right thing to do. Over time however, the duff, or underbrush piled up and fuel (the materials that fire feeds on) was allowed to accumulate to the point that were a fire to occur, disaster would almost certainly result. More recently, research (and physical evidence) has shown that allowing naturally occurring fires to burn is one way that nature takes care of housecleaning. Forest resource management now uses a technique called prescribed burns where they perform controlled burning to help that process along. These methods have their supporters and their opponents.
