This is the first issue of the USGS fire science newsletter, "Firelight". It was an important action called for in the USGS Wildland Fire Science Strategic Plan, released earlier this year and featured below. We include a variety of fire science topics from the last few months in this issue to give a sense of the breadth of our science support to fire, land, emergency and community managers.
