Wildlife and humans share a very deep chemistry. Wildfires in the first place, cause a lot of damage i.e. they destroy the soil present there and make land infertile. A great deal of natural habitat is lost, ecosystems are lost. Things necessary for man, for its daily purposes are lost such as wood, timber etc. It indirectly also causes economic turmoil for the people dependent on those products for their livelihood.
