AbstractThis is the third large fire occuring in Canada that has been studied by the writer. Unlike large wartime fires, these conflagrations all originated from a single source of ignition. All occurred in the presence of a strong wind. In general, they spread in the direction that the wind was blowing and continued to spread until they ran out of fuel. The spread of the fire on the flanks was stopped some times by topographical features and at other times by relatively fire-resistive buidings coupled with determined fire-fighting operations.
