A comparative analysis of the results of experimental investigations on determination of the conditions necessary and sufficient for the localization of ground, crown, and combined forest fires with the use of a barrier strip of moistened forest materials has been performed. The rational volumes of water used for the formation of such a strip in front of a forest fire and its sizes were determined. Different variants of localization of flame combustion and thermal decomposition of forest combustible materials depending on the action of an air flow (wind) on them were analyzed.
