Four of the vertical fuel profiles presented in Fig. 3a on page 1552 of this paper were inadvertently mislabelled (i.e., Plot 5 is Plot 8, Plot 6 is Plot 5, Plot 7 is Plot 6, and Plot 8 is Plot 7). Thus, Fig. 3a and its associated caption should have appeared as below. The authors thank K.R. Anderson of the Canadian Forest Service for bringing this discrepancy to our attention.
