The term wildland-urban intermix refers to a specific type of wildland-urban interface in which the homes or other structures are intermixed with wildland fuels, as opposed to a distinct area of wildland fuel adjacent to a developed area.




Although technically the terms wildland-urban interface and wildland-urban intermix are two different concepts, the term wildland-urban interface is usually used to refer to all types, and wildland-urban intermix to the special case described above.
