This preview extrapolates the future increase in burn area predicted by Chao Wu et al. in this issue of One Earth to consider the inevitable increase in fire-derived pollution and implication to human health. Although these global-scale predictions are concerning, understanding future fire at regional scales will be more beneficial for policy action and mitigation applications.
