Land and forest fire in Indonesia has been the annual environmental crisis for the several last decades. The Gunung Merbabu National Park is one of the areas with the most land and forest fire event. The event usually occurred during dry months. On October 2018, the Gunung Merbabu National Park lost 400 hectares of forest area due to the fire events. This fire event caused by both natural and un-natural factor from the burning activities. The fire event will endanger natural biodiversities, damage the animal habitat, and change the environment and ecosystem condition. This study aims to identify the prone area for land and forest fire in the Gunung Merbabu National Park. This study used Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), and Normalized Burn Ratio (NBR) extracted from Sentinel-2A imageries to classify the land-use/land-cover and to detect the burned area in the Gunung Merbabu National Park. The prone area analysis will also consider the accessibility distance from the center of the community activity in surrounding areas
