paragraph 3: How are they good?
even though you would think a "forest fire" only destroys the forest its not entirely true. forest fires are also very helpful in some ways.forest fires of course burn down any vegetation but this could be a very good thing as well.By burning down some vegetation it clears out any dead trees or dead plants and allows new ones to grow in their place.Also it clears out debris and even allows new homes for insects to live in the charred wood.

Paragraph 4: How are They Bad?
Forest fires are bad really because they destroy forests. They also burn down houses that are in the area. It could start with a small flame or campfire and end up spreading for miles and burning down everything in it's path. They destroy many trees(which we need to produce oxygen) and various types of animal homes. For example a bird's nest could catch fire easily and make species endangered of survival. They can harm both firefighters on scene and humans that live by or near the woods. Forest fires disturb the cycle of nature and if it happens too often relationships between species will not be the same.

Paragraph 5: How do Forest Fires Effect the Environment?
Well, they burn down tons of habitats and trees. They also burn garbage and waste that usually don't decompose easily. They allow new homes for species of insects. Fires burn down dead plants and tree debree and make room for new species and younger trees. Because they happen often some plant species have adapted and some species need them to survive. But, if the fires burn too intense the tree the seed and the cones of trees(which they use to reproduce) will burn too. So a balance of Forest Fires would actually sustain and help the environment.
