Wildfire in OK (IMAGE) American Society of Agronomy Caption Smoke and pyrocumulus cloud from a 2,800 ha fire that destroyed 23 homes near Stillwater Oklahoma in August of 2012. FAW at the time of the fire was only 0.10, or 10 percent of its possible maximum value, and KBDI was 744. This extremely low soil moisture desiccated herbaceous and woody vegetation (photo foreground), leading to increased wildfire probability. Credit J.D. Carlson.
