Assuming the fire is surrounded by a similar fuel source and there is no wind to take into account, the fire will most likely spread in a circular pattern. A fire on a sloped surface will most likely spread in an uphill direction, provided there is a fuel source, producing a fan-shaped spread. Evidence Collection & Analysis
