They might. When you are fighting a forest fire, you often locate a path of flammable material downwind of the fire and burn it in advance, in a controlled way to keep the main fire from spreading. Instead of running into a field of nice flammable grass, it will run into scorched ashes and have nothing to feed on. That stops it from proceeding.

I remember as a kid reading about an oil well fire. They put it out by firing off explosives in the area. The explosion consumed all of the immediate oxygen which put out the fire when it couldn't get any to keep burning.

[@4176,CrackedActor] You can't fight dogs with dogs. That's a dogfight and it's illegal.
[@882650,joe438] I'm reading a book about the world's smallest house. It's hard to get into.
