|author||David Maloney, former Chief of Fire Prevention at Oakland Army Base|
|quote||On page 13-64, Vol. II, of the Fire Protection Handbook is a section dealing with the characteristics of crown fires. None of the various species of Ecualyptus tree is mentioned in this section. Why not? Because any species of living tree that has had the moisture dried out of it by a fire, and then catches fire, can "throw burning embers far out ahead of the main fire."|
