I was just reading a new review on a canister stove. The author was discussing the need to use it over his alcohol stove because of a fire ban.
I don't live in a fire ban area. I understand why alcohol and wood stoves would be banned in these areas. But why are canister stoves allowed when there is a risk of failure?
Is it that the risk is considered low enough to allow it?
Just curious. I'm not looking to hike in a fire ban area any time in the near future.
