How to Build a Fire

1. Find or build a fire ring. Evaluate your environment before building or using an existing fire ring; avoid building fires or using fire rings located near brush or low-hanging branches, as even small fires can produce runaway embers that could easily ignite nearby flammables.

2. Gather firewood. Enduring fires need different sizes and kinds of wood: a combination of tinder (small twigs, leaves, needles); kindling (small sticks); and fuel (larger pieces of wood that can burn for long periods of time) will assure that your fire can be started easily and burn consistently for a lengthy period of time. Be sure that any wood you use is dry and dead; wet or live branches resist being lit and can produce thick smoke.

3. Build Your Fire. There are a number of different sound structures that can assure a long-lasting and consistent fire. Popular configurations such as Cone, Log Cabin, and Pyramid all have one thing in common: larger pieces of wood stacked around tinder and kindling provide both structure and fuel for your fire; be sure that whatever structure you employ can facilitate oxygen intake.

4. Light Your Fire. Light your fire with a match, a lighter, or with any combination of tools that can safely generate sparks, such as flint and steel. Be sure that you’re aiming for your tinder, which will burn readily and in turn ignite your fuel. As it burns, make sure that your embers are centralized within your fire structure so as not to burn out.

5. Extinguish and Clean Up Your Fire.. When you are no longer using your fire, extinguish it with water, taking care that you do not burn yourself by pouring too much water too quickly directly onto the fire, creating an abundance of steam. Avoid extinguishing your fire with dirt, sand, or other forest material, as this can trap dormant coals that could later spark a forest fire. Once cool, scatter any large remains or structures left around the area so as to leave a minimal trace on your environment.
