Abstract: The knowledge about where, when and why fires start is essential to assure appropriate fire policy and management. The ability to understand and predict the patterns of fire ignitions will help managers and decision makers to improve the effectiveness of fire prevention, detection and fire fighting resources allocation. This chapter starts by giving an overview of the patterns of fire occurrence in Europe. Then we present a more detailed analysis of key factors driving fire ignitions based on some case studies, and we conclude by making some remarks concerning implications for management.
