Fire plays a significant role in improving ecosystems by serving as an agent of renewal and change. But fires can be devastating and cause tangible destruction to homes, lives, wildlife habitats and pollute the air with emissions harmful to human health. The effects of smoke from fires can range from eye and respiratory tract inflammation to more severe disorders, including reduced lung function, bronchitis, exacerbation of asthma and heart failure, and premature death. Fires also release carbon dioxide—a primary greenhouse gas, thus accelerating climate change and global warming.
