Forest fire prediction constitutes a significant component of forest fire management. It plays a major role in resource allocation, mitigation and recovery efforts. This paper presents a description and analysis of forest fire prediction methods based on artificial intelligence. A novel forest fire risk prediction algorithm, based on support vector machines, is presented. The algorithm depends on previous weather conditions in order to predict the fire hazard level of a day. The implementation of the algorithm using data from Lebanon demonstrated its ability to accurately predict the hazard of fire occurrence.
