Abstract

Highlights
• Ecological Modernisation masks diverse valuations of vulnerability in fire debates.
• Ignoring different notions of vulnerability leads to depoliticisation.
• Depoliticisation prevents genuine debate about what is lost and gained with fires.
• Academic scholarship should help design sites of ‘healthy contestation’.
