What is a Forest Fire?

The book definition for a forest fire is an uncontrolled fire in a wooded place. Smokey the Bear says that only you can control a forest fire. This means that if you are in the forest on a camping trip or something, you must be very careful to put you camp fire out. Just smothering the fire is not enough. You must pour water over it and watch it until all of the sparks are gone and there is no smoke. For more information see here:
