Crown fires -which burn through the top layer of foliage on a tree, known as the canopy or crown fires. Crown fires, the most intense type of fire and often the most difficult to contain, need strong winds, steep slopes and a heavy fuel load to continue burning.

"Apart from the threat to life, forest fires are ecologically damaging depending on whether they are ground fires or crown fires. When fires spread at the level of treetops - the crown - they irreversibly damage trees. The fires in Uttarakhand this year, according to Mr. Kumar are largely ground fires."
