"Pyroterrorism" or "Pyro-Terrorism" is the act of setting fire to large amounts of land and/or property for political reasons, usually in a systematic or random approach in order to escape capture from authorities. The purpose of pyroterrorism is to destroy a particular country or region's local economy and kill innocent civilians in a way that prevents the would be arsonist from being easily identified or captured.[1]

In ancient times pyroterrorism was used as a war tactic to raze crops and destroy an enemy's ability to feed themselves, thus weakening the foe.

The topic of pyroterrorism has received very little media attention except in countries like Australia, Lebanon,[2] Greece[3] and most recently in California,[4] but some believe that pyroterrorism presents a very serious threat to the United States.[5]
