The Wild Fire

Written by Lisa DeMauro

The book I read told about a wild fire. In West Hampton, Long Island, the biggest wild fire in the United States started. It took 200 firefighters to stop the blaze. The blaze started when a man threw a cigarette into a very dry forest. The fire from the cigarette hit the trees and the whole forest was set on fire because everything was dried up.

The pictures in the book were very realistic. The reason I think you should read this book is because it is about fire and firefighters. If you want to be a firefighter someday you will know how dangerous it can be.
