What is the part of speech for muck fire?
Muck fires are fires that burn underground. They are started (usually in late winter/early spring in Florida) when buried decomposing vegetation spontaneously combusts or …is ignited by lightning strikes. This happens during the dry season as the vegetation begins to dry out. Because heat is not transferred well in these conditions, areas that are still moist will produce heat from the process of decomposition. The heat accumulates to the point where it can ignite dryer material adjacent to the area of decomposition. These fires can burn for weeks, and are extremely hard to extinguish. Most of the time they don't cause any problems, but occasionally the work their way to the surface, and can ignite material above the ground. But the majority of them just smolder under ground, and create a horrible odor that lasts for weeks.
Answer The cause of muck fires is called lignite, which burns when lightning hits it underground. They burn for weeks especially when hit by lightning.
Muck fires are underground fires under a layer of duff in marshy areas. Muck fires are started when lightning strikes the ground and starts to burn. THEY ARE MAINLY IN FLORIDA…
well, to my calculation there are about 2 deaths a second so that would be like 120 deaths a minute.
When a Muck Fire start it is because lightening hit a dry area.
Muck fires are fires that burn underground. They get started by lightning hitting a dry area. They are most common in Tampa Bay, a place in Florida. They can burn for sometime…s years at a time. Most are impossible to get rid of. and admit smoke everywhere
Yes, and they are very prominent.
they are underground fires they can reach the surface they can burn for weeks the smoke can stay there for weeks as well
Fires that are underground, usually in ligite soil
No, but you can slow it down with fire breaks and keeping the surrounding areas clear of dead brush, alert a local FD and let them handle the rest of the job. NEVER try to con…tain a muck fire alone. The cause of them is lightning storms, the lightning will strike the ground and cause the fire, but it strikes in a marsh type area, thus it being a muck fire, the muck underground is flammable, and it smolders. That's what causes the smoke in the air. Muck fires are DANGEROUS!
muck fires are located in belle glade Florida
Good question Muck Fires are fires that are under ground.They can start two ways.One is if lightning hitting a very dry area.The other way is from littering.When you litter th…e forest or any wood like area it turns into this flammable sticky goop that seeps into the ground like water and will only go so far (not even an inch) then it will dry.Now lets say a forest fire happens if the fire spreads to that area it will trigger the goop and a Muck Fire happens.So that is pretty hard to put out a fire and a fire that makes the ground cave in.This goop can even be trigger if someone throws anything that you smoke and it will cause the ash makes it catch on fire.Now I know your thinking then how come the whole ground caves in if the goop is only so big.Well, the answer to that is a Muck Fire spreads just like a Forest Fire but, the only difference is instead of wood, grass, and plants it uses ground.
More than 100 muck fires have occurred during this year muck fires are started by lightning that hit a dry area.
muck fires never burn out when they get struck by lightning.
smoke and fire
it affeact them by slowing them down and makes them less strong
