 Fire in Filing 7 | July 7, 2005

Photos by Jodi Sandquist

In the photos below the "dirt" in these pictures is actually duff -- the thick layer of pine needles and other plant matter that gathers under trees. You should always scrape the area around your campfire ring down to mineral soil (dirt) to make sure that sparks from your fire have no fuel in which they can easily spread.
