This was the reason why the 24-year-olf engineering student from the University of Nairobi, Kenya, decided to do something about it.

Pascal Katana came up with a special device that identifies fire outbreaks automatically. His latest invention features heat sensors that are programmed to identify temperatures that exceed 45 degrees Celsius. As soon as the device detects a fire outbreak, it sends information to the nearest forest station through a handheld phone.

The device is also environmentally-friendly, being powered by 5 volts solar panels. Before hitting the market, the fire outbreak detector must be tested and granted patent protection. More information in the device is available here.
