Grazing lands are subject to wildfire because of an abundance of fine fuel (grass), frequent dry conditions, and proximity to an ignition source -usually a road or highway. Due to the risk of Wildfire, rangelands and pastures must be protected from accidental fires and/or those that are intentionally set. Firebreaks are a necessary and useful tool in this regard.
