Fire is one of the earth's most devastating forces. Fire has many causes from a stroke of lightning to a carelessly dropped match. And once a fierce blaze begins, it can swallow forests, homes, and entire towns. A forest or city fire can be a catastrophe for people and their property, as well as for animals and the environment. With dramatic images and first-hand survivor stories plus the latest facts and figures this book takes you up close with fire disasters.
