The comparisons made in this paper are quite basic and the statistical sample is quite small. However, the results are substantial enough to conclude that: (1) When the energy release component is "high or above”, adverse fire behavior is more likely to occur. (2) The spread component is dependable in predicting relative spread rates. (3) As the Burning Index increases fires require a longer time to control, are likely to be larger in size, and, in general, are more difficult to contain. (4) Fires in Fuel Model C, as compared to Fuel Model D, are less likely to exhibit adverse fire behavior, require less control time, and, in general, are easier to contain, given equal values of fire danger. This is a preliminary report, and it is expected that in the near future a more thorough correlation of all components and indices can be made.
