Modeling fire spread as an infection process is intuitive: an ignition lights a patch of fuel, which infects its neighbor, and so on. Infection models produce non-linear thresholds, whereby fire spreads only when fuel connectivity and infection probability are sufficiently high. These thresholds are fundamental both to managing fire and to theoretical models of fire spread, whereas applied fire models more often apply quasi-empirical approaches. Here, we resolve this tension by quantifying thresholds in fire...
