Wildfire's can take place on underdeveloped wildland or uncultivated land comprised of forest, brush or grassland.

Back in March, Montgomery County experienced several brush/wildfire type of fires. These fires were not classified as arson though. Of particular note were two days in which two large brush/wildfire type fires occurred. You can learn more about those fires below:
