Puzzles | Logic puzzles | Island on Fire

You are on the South of an island (10 miles North to South) covered by dry vegetation. There is a fire which started at the far North of the Island and, because the wind is blowing strongly Southward, is working its way slowly South (1 mile per hour). You have no way to carry/channel water and no means of escaping the island. How can you survive the fire?
