It's a Hot Issue!
Of course, the negative effects would be it burns our plants and destroys the wildlife that live in the forest or region. If winds get out of control it can affect human homes and cost millions of dollars to repair the damage. Some main areas that unfortunately get affected by wildfires are mountains in California, Arizona, and Colorado. Wildfires occur mostly in the West. Wildlife that are indigenous to the area include deer, elk, rabbits, foxes, bears, birds and plants. How are is the wildlife affected by wild fires? The wildlife would be displaced or killed and/or their food to survive will be reduced or destroyed.
Wildfires are caused by the environment naturally unless humans accidentally or purposely start them. Humans can reduce the risk of starting wildfires by learning the proper ways to put out a campfire. Smokey the Bear promos on TV and computer is an excellent method to teach people.
Me, myself, and I believe that some ways to prevent a wildfire from starting would be, use proper disposal of flammable products that you use. You cannot prevent wild fires from starting but you can prevent the human side of starting a wildfire.
