Agripyrophobia (from Greek words agri and pyro, meaning "field" and "fire", respectively) is the fear of wildfires. This fear is commonly suffered in areas where wildfires are common, such as in California. The fear is often triggered either due to witnessing wildfires, displacing them or by learning about it through the news, especially in the home state. People suffering agripyrophobia will leave the wildfire-prone area, but some sufferers may believe that wildfires may strike anywhere around the world, so they would pray for rain. So believers would live in fireproof building while limiting amount of time spending outdoors.
