In this paper, the system focuses on optimizing the flame detection by identifying gray cycle pixels nearby the flame, which is generated because of smoke and of spreading of fire pixel and the area spread of flame. The model uses fuzzy logic or fuzzy inference system (FIS) to detect fire pixels. These techniques can be used to reduce false alarm by giving the accurate result of fire occurrence along with fire detection methods. The system also give the opportunity to adjust the system by applying different combination of fire detecting techniques which will help in implementation of system according to different sensitive area requirement.
