Table 4 Distance of significant fire pathway cells in grass fuel models to the nearest timber fuel model cell. Distance was determined by counting the number of cells between a significant cell and the nearest timber fuel model cell. Significance was determined by a chi-square test to at least the P > 0.05 level and indicates that the grass fuel model burned more often than expected. Of the grass fuel model cells that burned more often than expected, 79 % occurred within 60 m of a timber fuel model cell.
