Author Anderson, Hal E.
Publisher United States. Forest Service (1968)
Abstract The Sundance Fire in northern Idaho occurred during the summer of 1967. In a period of only 9 hours this fire traveled 16 miles, engulfed more than 50,000 acres, released millions of heat units, snapped and toppled hundreds of trees, and destroyed much of the storage capacity of the watersheds. This paper provides a description of the geographical are and a narrative of the movement of the fire. It describes the approach to study and the values calculated from the data are given in a chronology corresponding to the fire's major run. A more detailed discussion of significant features of the fire is also given with the appendixes containing information on methods of calculation and experimental procedures that helped the investigators to draw their conclusions.
