                         tropical forests, playing a key role as reservoirs of carbon and 
                         biodiversity. However, whether at a slower or faster pace, 
                         continued deforestation causes forest fragmentation in this 
                         region. Thus, understanding the relationship between forest 
                         fragmentation and fire incidence and intensity in this region is 
                         critical. Here, we use MODIS Active Fire Product (MCD14ML, 
                         Collection 6) as a proxy of forest fire incidence and intensity 
                         (measured as Fire Radiative PowerFRP), and the Brazilian official 
                         Land-use and Land-cover Map to understand the relationship among 
                         deforestation, fragmentation, and forest fire on a deforestation 
                         frontier in the Brazilian Amazonia. Our results showed that forest 
                         fire incidence and intensity vary with levels of habitat loss and 
                         forest fragmentation. About 95% of active fires and the most 
                         intense ones (FRP > 500 megawatts) were found in the first 
                         kilometre from the edges in forest areas. Changes made in 2012 in 
                         the Brazilian main law regulating the conservation of forests 
                         within private properties reduced the obligation to recover 
                         illegally deforested areas, thus allowing for the maintenance of 
                         fragmented areas in the Brazilian Amazonia. Our results reinforce 
                         the need to guarantee low levels of fragmentation in the Brazilian 
                         Amazonia in order to avoid the degradation of its forests by fire 
                         and the related carbon emissions.",
