10. A Farmer Saves His Plants

Here, this drone managed to capture a farmer in the midst of saving his plants. While we do not know if he succeeded, we do understand what he was hoping to do. In essence, the way in which the farmer is traveling in relation to the fire indicates that he is trying to create a fire point.

A fire point is a way to destroy the fuel for a fire. Here, that fuel is dry crops. If the farmer destroys these crops in a consistent way in front of the flame, the fire will have no fuel to burn once it gets into the line. The expectation is that this temporary lack of fuel will avoid the flame from burning forward. While dangerous, this was a valiant effort by the tractor driver to protect the land.
