Think you know the answer?  Post a comment and look for the answer on Monday!




Your answer was on fire!

A:  In order to have a fire, there must be three elements:

  • Fuel—something which will burn
  • Heat—enough to make the fuel burn
  • Air—more specifically, oxygen

Usually these three elements are expressed as a triangle, called The Fire Triangle.  All three elements must be present at the same time to have a fire. Fire will burn until one or more of the elements is removed.
