Temporal dynamical analysis in fire sequences recorded from 1992 to 2005 in a fire-vulnerable area of Patagonia (Argentina) was performed by using the Allan Factor statistics. Three typologies of fires were investigated: forest, steppe and urban. The obtained results show the presence of annual periodicities, superimposed to a time-scaling behaviour, which characterize the point processes of fires as fractal time processes with a rather high degree of time-clusterization of the events.
