Thanks for posting this. I live in an area where people still practice slash and burn agriculture, and the mountains around us are on fire every year during the dry season. Of course this isnt smart, even from an agricultural point of view but old habits die slowly.

I think it is easy to underestimate the threat of fire. We are exposed to fire from an early age and usually always in a very controlled environment. It is easy to forget what a mighty force fire can be. Seeing wildfires in its full force like the video is really eye opening.
