    I made a dome out of light blue stained glass around the area I wanted to preserver and it has a bunch of trees inside it and trees on the outside. When the trees on the outside catch fire, the trees next to them on the inside also catch fire even though there is coloured glass in between them. I don't know if this is a bug or if I am doing something wrong. I also made sure there is no breach in the dome but everything still catches on fire.
