What is Fire?
Fire is a series of chemical chain reactions that break fuel down into pieces and result in waste products of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, water vapor, unburned fuel or smoke, and other chemicals.
You can stop a fire in the following ways:
- remove the heat source (dousing with water, for example)
- cut off the oxygen (such as putting a lid on burning grease)
- use extinguishing chemicals (such as those found in fire extinguishers)
