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.
