Multiple-alarm Fire
ONE-ALARM, TWO-ALARM, THREE-ALARM FIRES, etc., are categories of fires indicating the level of response by local authorities, with an elevated number of alarms indicating an increased number of phone alarms went off during the fire. The term MULTIPLE-ALARM is a quick way of indicating that a fire is severe and is difficult to contain . This system of classification is common in the USA and in Canada
Canada
among both fire departments and news agencies. CONTENTS * 1 Definition * 2 History * 3 Typical alarm levels * 4 References * 5 External links DEFINITIONA common misconception is that a "3-alarm fire," for example, means that three firehouses responded to the fire. This is not the rule behind the naming convention, although some cities may use the number of firehouses responding for multi-alarm designations because that is the simplest way to determine an alarm number

Brush Fire
A WILDFIRE or WILDLAND FIRE is a fire in an area of combustible vegetation that occurs in the countryside or rural area . Depending on the type of vegetation where it occurs, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a BRUSH FIRE, BUSH FIRE, DESERT FIRE, FOREST FIRE, GRASS FIRE, HILL FIRE, PEAT FIRE, VEGETATION FIRE, or VELD FIRE. Fossil charcoal indicates that wildfires began soon after the appearance of terrestrial plants 420 million years ago. Wildfire’s occurrence throughout the history of terrestrial life invites conjecture that fire must have had pronounced evolutionary effects on most ecosystems' flora and fauna. Earth is an intrinsically flammable planet owing to its cover of carbon-rich vegetation, seasonally dry climates, atmospheric oxygen, and widespread lightning and volcano ignitions. Wildfires can be characterized in terms of the cause of ignition, their physical properties, the combustible material present, and the effect of weather on the fire
