A Tamefire is burning under complete control in the middle of the wetlands...

Why do we call wildfire by such a name?
Is it wild because we cannot control it?
House fires aren't called wildfires, even when there's no control there.
Is it because of its size?
How big does a fire have to be if this is the case? Continuing this line of thought, if size is a factor, is it the heighth of the flames? Or the width and girth?
Does it have to do with location?
Can there be a wildfire completely within a field of weeds? Or is it limited to just forests?

Can the flame on the head of a match be considered wild?
