Watch in awe as the US Forest Service executes a massive prescribed burn in Utah’s Fishlake National Forest. The fire was used as an opportunity to test a fire model used for forecasting where and how a fire will move.

In this video Adam Kochanski of the University of Utah, proves that the new fire model, WRF-SFIRE, can accurately predict the movement of prescribed burns and wildfires… in real time.
