Ignitions were also often very close to the main roads (Catry et al, 2007). High population density though seems to play a double role. On the one hand it leads to a higher number of fires, as many fires are human-caused. On the other hand the probability of early fire detection is higher in high population density districts, and can lead to a quicker response of fire-fighters – hence to a reduction of the average area affected by each fire event (Costa et al, 2007).
