Typical Brush Fire

This is image of the kind of a fire that can be effectively contained with two Indian pumps, a few refills, and a second person with a shovel, as long as there isn't a high wind. You can get quite close to these fires. The idea is to stop them before they get to your house.

One thing to keep in mind is that a fire grows with time, and if there is a wind, can rapidly grow out of control and endanger the firefighters. My comments refer to fighting a fire on your own property unassisted. As a guess, you need one Indian pump, with refills available, plus a second person with a swatter or shovel per thirty-five linear foot of fire.
