from sparks, is a slow spread.
A strong wind turns the flames on
their sides, forces the heat close to
the ground, and so bakes the fuel

A slope has the same effect—the
fuel on the slope above the fire is
closer to the rising course of flames
and heat. Fires on step hillsides are
hard to hold. Fire "slides" uphill.
