We present some results of using IR imaging to study the dynamics of brightness temperature field of the ground forest fires from linear and point fire sources under laboratory conditions. Dynamics of some characteristics (speed of fire front propagation, size of flaming zone, total energy, etc.) and time variation of the brightness temperature field are analyzed. Empirical relations between these characteristics and the phase of the fire are derived.
