The detection and prevention of forest fire is a major problem now a days. Timely detection allows the prevention units to reach the fire in its initial stage and thus reduce the risk of spreading and the harmful impact on human and animal life. Because of the inadequacy of conventional forest fire detection on real time and monitoring accuracy the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is introduced. This paper proposes a fuzzy logic based implementation to manage the uncertainty in forest fire detection problem. Sensor nodes are used for detecting probability of fire with variations during different time in a day. The Sensor nodes sense temperature, humidity, light intensity, CO 2 density and time and send the information to the base station. This proposed system improves the accuracy of the forest fire detection and also provides a real time based detection system as all the input variables are collected in real time basis.
