In this article, the authors discuss modeling and simulation of forest fire spread and suppression using the discrete event system specification (DEVS) cell space approach in DEVSJAVA. The eventbased modeling approach enables efficient simulation of cell space and allows one to obtain timely simulation-based predictions of forest fire spread and suppression in uniform and nonuniform environmental conditions. This model represents an advance toward developing a real-time decision support
