It is my impression that many non-native plants and animals tend to be slower to recover from fire or disappear entirely in burn areas. Of course that depends on the nature of the fire (temperature, speed), season, location, etc., but is seems to be a less common kind of fire there. After the initial shocks pass there will be many good questions to ask.
