The sad truth is that nearly 9 out of 10 wildfires are still caused by humans:

  • In 2014 there were 7,933 wildfires caused by lightning, but 55,679 wildfires caused by human error (as reported to the National Interagency Fire Center).
  • In 2014 more than 3.5 million acres burned due to wildfires in the U.S. of those, more than 1.5 million acres burned due to human-caused wildfires.

Although most of us don’t behave this way intentionally, each year we learn of devastating wildfires caused by careless behavior which can impact millions of acres of forest and thousands of homes.

We can also be more responsible in our homes when it comes to fire safety as well. Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep. Only one in five home fires was reported during these hours.

    Just remember to put campfires out completely when done. If you are a smoker, please put your cigarette out completely, don’t just flick it.

  • Toneria

    I don’t know anyone who has experienced wildfires, and I’ve never seen one. You just have to be cautious about using flammable things in the woods.

  • If you ever make a campfire or grill in the wilderness, make sure after the coal has stopped burning, you spread the ash around a tree and put generous amounts of water onto it. I don’t know anyone affected by a wildfire.

  • Carolyn Massey

    I don’t know anyone that has been affected by wild fires. Any time you start a firebplease make sure you stay with it and when you leave put it out with water. Make sure it’s out, scatter the ashes around making sure no hot embers.

  • Jeanna johnson

    I have not experienced wildfires and I don’t know of anyone who has! You have to take responsibility for your actions and be careful if you start a fire!

  • alycep

    I have not experienced a wildfire first hand but common sense would say that you never leave any fire unattended and not your weather conditions before starting one outdoors.

  • Jennifer Stanley

    My mom volunteers at an animal shelter in California and you wouldn’t believe the number of pets displaced by the wild fires going on out there. Many escape the home but cannot find their owner. You must be careful not only with campfires but also lanterns and grills while camping.

  • wildnmild4u

    I have never experienced a wildfire and I don’t know of anyone who has. Never leave a fire unattended would be a good tip.

  • Kelly N

    Do you have any tips for Wildfire prevention?

    yes..know what the heck youre doing!

  • Sandy Klocinski

    Remove all dead plants, grass and weeds (vegetation) within 30 feet of your home. I don’t know anyone who has been affected by a wildfire

  • desithebonde

  • Lynn

    Don’t play with fire, if you have to have a fire clear your area first and keep water near by to put it out.

  • jalapenomama

    If you build a bonfire be sure it is completely out when done.
    form name Barbara Montag
    thank you

  • Myra

    I live in a National Forest in North Alabama and we don’t have the huge fires like out west. We do have fires sometime. If we camp in the wilderness are, we always make sure our camp fire is out. I’ve helped with a few fires. Not fun

  • mickeyfan

    Only YOU can prevent forest fires.

  • JillianToo

    Check for fire restrictions or warnings before building a campfire.

  • Crystal Sheckles-Gibson

    When burning leaves or anything on my property I always make sure to keep the water hose close by.

  • Noelle Cagle

    We had our summer vacation cancelled the night before this year due to wildfires in the California Sequoias. The fire was started by lightening, so no prevention, but I guess cutting back brush around buildings is always a good tip.

  • Danielle

    Make sure you can put the fire out if it starts to get out of control. example plenty of water close by. And my sister in laws mother and father lost everything in a wildfire this year. Home,vehicles,pets, pictures EVERYTHING. It was devastating.

  • Dierdra Byrd

    The only tip I have, is to put fires that you start out. I do not know anyone who has been affected.

  • tinareynolds

    Always put out campfires not a lot of experience with wildfire but big thing at home I make sure to watch blow out candles

  • Eugenia Hall

    Always practice fire safety, make sure all outdoor fires are really, truly out before going to bed or leaving.

  • channallocks
