Greg Dillon, is interviewed on tracking wildfire risk by 9NEWS.

At the U.S. Forest Service's Missoula Fire Sciences Lab, a team put together an interactive map to help show the wildfire risk to communities.

"We have a collection of research scientists doing science on a whole range of issues around wildland fire, everything from studying fire behavior to studying smoke and the chemistry of smoke to studying fire ecology and how fire operates on the landscape and in ecosystems," said Greg Dillon, Director of the Fire Modeling Institute at the lab.
