Seems people unfamiliar with burning prairie see the fire more like a forest fire, but forest fires and prairie fires are quite different. The forest fire has WAY MORE and DENSER material to burn. A (dry) prairie fire is over within minutes and just goes out when the plant material is used up. I like to compare a (well executed) prairie burn to a controlled demolition of an old building. Carefully, strategically using the energy to accomplish the goal, in this case, the recycling of plant matter back into the soil from which it grew. Prairie plants evolved with regular fires from native people and lightening strikes too.
