Undoubtedly, great environmental damage especially in forests due to wild fire expansion has been occurred lately which has for result the deterioration of the human quality of life. For this reason an urgent need for environmental protection and preservation has been raised in the last years. This paper, presents a new approach dedicated to forest fire detection and based on wireless sensor network and fuzzy logic that performs a real-time monitoring system in order to detect forest fires and avoid considerable damages. Wireless sensor networks are used in many fields and have been deployed in a variety of applications ranging from monitoring a small room to large forests.
