This article demonstrates how easily one can be caught unawares by grass fires.

Although gamba grass isn’t mentioned that the hikers mention a “wall of fire” 
suggests that it is so - the Park is badly infested with this weed.  In the 
past Litchfield Park rangers have expressed their fear that people would be 
caught in gamba-fuelled fires.
