    Wildfires release chlorine-containing compounds. Some of these can reach the ozone layer, and cause photocatalytic ozone depletion. Wildfires consume oxygen, and destroy oxygen producers. Ozone depends on oxygen being present to be made. Wildfires alter the surface reluctance of Earth's surface (hotter / more absorptive), and loft water vapor. Both of these tend to drive more water vapor into the ozone layer, where it too causes ozone depletion. Wildfires are also a part of Nature's cycles, biomes depend on some "periodic" wildfire events, so elimination of them will be harmful to those biomes. Most especially grasslands.
