Wildfire Simulator

This online wildfire simulation tool allows users to simulate a wildfire, choosing the wind direction, speed, and the fire's start location. Once you've started your wildfire, you can then fight it, using firelines and backfires in order to try and stop its spread, or, failing that, control it. This interactive simulation requires Shockwave Player to run.
