Fires moving faster than you can run - firefighters on tackling wildfires

The challenges firefighters in the UK face when confronted with large-scale wildfires are enormous.

Tinder-dry conditions and the heatwave that many of us across the country are experiencing mean the risk of wildfires is very high.

Kent, one of the areas where the Met Office has raised the fire severity index to exceptional for Saturday and Sunday, has already seen a nearly tenfold increase in the number of vegetation fires between July 2021 and July 2022 (44 to 400).

But what makes wildfires especially hard to tackle?

"It changes on a minute-by-minute basis," says Richard Hawley, wildfire officer at West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

"One minute they are knee-high, the next they are above your head. It is one of the most arduous fires our crews face."

Wildfires spread rapidly - left unchecked, they can rage for miles and miles across the countryside. If the wind changes direction, so could the fire.
