Prairie, or "wild" fires are often worse than any "forest" fire.

South Texas is most isolated clumps of mesquite and
cancti, both of which ranchers deliberately burn anyway
as they take up valuable grass land. Can't imagine why
they would put out any spontaneous fires....

Mesquite, which is often considered a "trash" wood, is really the
center of a thriving industry in Texas. A highly figured & colourful
wood, it is used in furniture making & custom gun grips, amongst
other uses. I've 3 pair of mesquite grips on handguns I own. I will
admit to having a "hate" relationship with mesquite though. It dates
from my childhood growing up in west Texas in the early 50's. The
thorns were & still are, murderous ! Unfortunately, at that time the
mesquite tree was the only thing around there that a normal active kid
could use for climbing.
