Fire Spread

About this model

Each cell in this model is one of three states: burnable-green (0), burning-red (1) or burned-black (2). If a burnable cell has a burning neighbor, it will become burning in the next generation with the probability given by the slider's value. Each burning cell burns for exactly 1 generation, and then changes to burned. Each cell can also be part of a firewall (state 3). Firewalls (blue) remain in a fixed state and can prevent fires from spreading.

The initial configuration can be altered by left-clicking on a cell to change its color and dragging that cell to change the colors of neighboring cells.
