Forest Fires

Forest Fire Paragraph

Forest Fires are very dangerous. Spreading at 6.7 mph they knock anything down in their path. The fires are very hot, in fact they are ⅕ of sun's surface heat (Bill Gabbert). The stuff that put them to sleep is red water made of mostly water mixed with ammonium phosphate or sulfate with guar gum and iron oxide according to Matthew Alice. The largest forest fire in history was in 1825, and burned around 3 million acres of land. 90% of Forest Fires are caused by human carelessness. On average the destruction amount is 1.2 acres of woodland. Forest Fires cause a lot of damage everything threaten close towns and lives.

Forest Fire Poem

He spreads 6.7 miles per hour

He blazes like the sun a forest fire

When he comes alive he furiously destroys

1.2 million acres of woodland on average


He is mainly started by humans carelessness

in fact 90% is made by carelessness

He is put to rest by the red water made of mostly water

mixed with ammonium phosphate or sulfate with guar gum and iron oxide


In 1825 the largest in history happened

burning 3 million acres of woodland

The crackling loud pop pop pop

all of the sudden CRASH


He is as hot as ⅕ of the sun

He does not care what's in his way

a car a house a town he doesn't care

Would you mess with him?
