Two Main Issues Caused by Wild Fires
In order for a forest fire to be put out it cost lots of money. The USDA Forest Service was forced to transfer more than $1 billion to pay for fighting wildfires. "In the same three years the Department of the Interior transferred nearly $60 million to cover the cost of fighting fires."
Another main issue is that its always wildfire season somewhere in the United States. "More than 100,000 wildfires clear 4 million to 5 million acres of land in the U.S. every year." A wildfire can move up to a speed of 40 miles an hour destroying everything in its path.

Who or What Causes Wildfires to Occur
Humans cause 90 percent of wildfires in the United States. These wildfires can occur because of campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, negligently discarded cigarettes and internal acts of arson. The other 10 percent are caused by lightning or lava.
