Forest fire is one of important catastrophic events and have great impact on environment, infrastructure and human life. In this study, we discuss the method for prediction of the size of the forest fire using the hybrid approach between Fuzzy-C-Means clustering (FCM) and Neural Networks (NN) classification with backpropagation learning and extreme learning machine approach. For comparison purpose, we consider a similar hybrid approach, i.e., FCM with the classical Support Vector Machine (SVM) classification approach. In the empirical study, we apply the considered methods using several meteorological and Forest Weather Index (FWI) variables. We found that the best approach will be obtained using hybrid FCM-SVM for data training, where the best performance obtains for hybrid FCM-NN-backpropagation for data testing.
