heterogeneity of the land cover, burned areas are generally small. Analysis of the official reports [European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS)] compiled for five Mediterranean countries (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, and Greece) during a 30-yr period indicates an average fire size of 10 ha with a minimum of 6 ha for Portugal and France, a maximum of 30 ha for Greece, and a value of 11 ha for Spain and Italy ( Camia et al. 2009 ). In Italy, fires get particularly intense in the southern regions of
