Fire in the Wilderness

A fire rages in the forest some kilometres north of Örebro, where we live. The fire fighters have taken control of the fire, but it may take weeks before there is no fire left.

Humans often want to control fires and put them out. At the same time, scientists have learned more and more of the benefits of letting wildfires burn. It gives way to new growth and benefits the eco system. Perhaps it would be a good idea to let more fires burn?
