Results of experimental investigations on the efficiency of suppression of the flame combustion and thermal decomposition of forest combustible materials in a forest fire by the local throw-down of water masses to a zone of this fire, the spraying of a fine-dispersed water over the combustion zone, and the formation of a water screen along its perimeter are presented. Features of each of these methods are analyzed. Advantages of the combined method of extinguishing a forest fire, involving the space spraying of small water droplets intended to be distributed through the fire hotbed over a given period of time, are demonstrated.
