Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I did not find a tool in OSM to draw a firewall ligne. In my case, you can go along the firewall on foot, bike, 4WD but can't cross river at all. Should I create multiple forest paths ? It seems to be relevant, but I'd rather ask to other experimented OSM contributors. Thanks

For those of us unfamiliar with the term ‘firewall line’, is it the same as a firebreak as decribed here:

If there's a track or path evident and if a car can drive on it, use highway=track, if only foot or bicycle use highway=path.

On top of this you can break up the wooded area to exclude the firewall line.
