                         occurrence in the Amazonian forest is particularly relevant for 
                         its conservation. We evaluate the relationship between forest 
                         fires and different anthropogenic activities linked to a variety 
                         of land uses in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso, Par{\'a}, 
                         and Rond{\^o}nia. We combine the new high-resolution 
                         (30\ m) TerraClass land use database with Moderate 
                         Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer burned area data for 2008 and 
                         the extreme dry year of 2010. Excluding the non-forest class, most 
                         of the burned area was found in pastures, primary and secondary 
                         forests, and agricultural lands across all three states, while 
                         only around 1% of the total was located in deforested areas. The 
                         trend in burned area did not follow the declining deforestation 
                         rates from 2001 to 2010, and the spatial overlap between 
                         deforested and burned areas was only 8% on average. This supports 
                         the claim of deforestation being disconnected from burning since 
                         2005. Forest degradation showed an even lower correlation with 
                         burned area. We found that fires used in managing pastoral and 
                         agricultural lands that escape into the neighboring forests 
                         largely contribute to forest fires. Such escaping fires are 
                         responsible for up to 52% of the burned forest edges adjacent to 
                         burned pastures and up to 22% of the burned forest edges adjacent 
                         to burned agricultural fields, respectively. Our findings call for 
                         the development of control and monitoring plans to prevent fires 
                         from escaping from managed lands into forests to support effective 
                         land use and ecosystem management.",
