Lightning may not strike twice in the same place although it strikes with sur prising regularity, as shown by forest tire statistic, complied by the United States Forest Service, The figures show that during three of the last five years there were 201, 101, and 107 forest fires in the nationalll forests of Arizona and New Mexico due to lightning, although during the other two years, which were unusually dry, there were considerably more. This small variation of only ten fires during the three years indicates, according to forest officers, that light ning presents a fairly constant forest fire1 risk. It is pointed out by officers of the Forest Service that lightning does not always start forest fires, since a great deal of, it occurs during heavy showers, especially in July and August. Heavy electrical displays during such storms are responsible for many lightning struck and often shattered trees, but fires rarely start because of the down pour of rain. During June and the early part of July, however, there are dry electrical storms. The skies cloud up and there is a great deal of lightning and terrific thunder, although little or no rain falls. In the course of such storms many trees are struck by light ning and forest fires often result. It is not at all uncommon for three or four fires to start in one locality from storms of this kind, and as many as ten fires have been known to originate thus. Fortunately for the protection of the forests, the. Forest Service fire organiza tion always has sufficient warning of the coming of such fires. At the first clap of thunder the whole machinery of the fire-fighting forces is mobilized for action, with horses saddled and packed with provisions and tools, and the rangers ren.dv to start immediately for the iires as they are reported by the fire lookouts. . Exnrience has shown that lightning fires do not at first spread as rapidly as those caused by man. Ordinarily thev smokier for some time at the base of the tree struck, although when once the grass and debris under the tree catches fire the spread is rapid. This is why the rangers are so anxious to get to the lightning fires quickly. Getting them while small not only saves a lot of forest from destruction, but it also relieves the rangers of a good deal of work. Man-caused forest fires, on the other hand, ordinarily spread more rapidly from the start, and no warning as to when they will happen is given to ra users. These fires are, therefore, more difficult to get to as quickly as light ning fires and 'often harder to control after arrival. However, man-caused fires are generally in accessible country, along roads and trails where they can be easily reached, while lightning may strike anywhere, often in spots very difficult of access. Studies have shown also that light ning fires occur most frequently in cer tain zones. Parts of the national forests of the southwest have virtually never had lightning fires, while other localities have repeated fires from this cause. Such areas are bein" definitely located as qui'kly as sufficient information is gathered, and thp Forest Service fire organization is beine' constantly modi fied to take care of these emergencies.
