Wildfires are accidental and uncontrolled.  They threaten lives and property and can do great harm.

 Controlled Burn Prescribed burns, on the other hand, are set intentionally after considering the safety of people and property.  Prescribed burns are planned to achieve a specific objective in a specific area under appropriate weather conditions and at the right time of year.  Fire-control equipment and fire crews are used to keep the fire under control.
