. There are fire dependent trees that would die in a couple years without fire
Some trees need heat for the seeds to spread regeneration.
Soil erosion
During the process of regrowth after a fire, the soil isn't completely stable.
The roots of the plants aren't strong enough to hold the soil in place therefore, things like the slightest gust of wind could move the soil and cause major disasters.
Air pollution
Wherever there is fire, smoke usually follows. Smoke is very thick and shouldn't be consumed.
Smoke inhalation can cause several breathing problems and worsen that state of those who already have trouble breathing. Example: people with asthma.
Destruction of property
Not everyone in America has insurance. Disasters such as a fire can cost a lot of money for those who are not expecting a fire to break out.
Harm of Animals
Every year, many animal habitats are destroyed. No food, no shelter, how you gonna live?
The animals sometimes even get caught in the fire and in most cases, death occurs.
This is extremely bad especially do to the amount of endangered species in certain areas.
