Natural disasters like bushfires pose a catastrophic threat to the Australia and the world’s territorial areas. This fire spreads in a wide area within seconds, and therefore, it is complicated and challenging to mitigate. To minimize risk and increase resilience, identifying bushfire occurrences beforehand and takes necessary actions is critically important. This study focuses on using deep learning technology for predicting bushfire occurrences using real weather data in any given location. Real-time and off-line weather data was collected using Weather Underground API, from 2012 to 2017 (N= 128 , 329). The obtained weather data are temperature, dew point, pressure, wind speed, wind direct..
