This project simulates the spread of a fire through a forest. The fire starts on the left edge of the forest, and spreads to neighboring trees. The fire spreads in four directions: north, east, south, and west. The fire's chance of reaching the right edge of the forest depends critically on the density of trees in the forest.
For detailed instructions on using the program, take a look at the info window from the Fire model.
