WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A FIRE TO START?

February 8, 2018

Fire needs three basic elements to start;

  • Fuel

  • Oxygen

  • Heat Source

This is called the ‘Fire Triangle’. If anyone of the three elements is missing, fire will not ignite, or, if it is already burning, removing one of the three will quench the flames.

 

The fire can be brought under control and/or can be quenched, if one of these elements is taken out of the ‘Fire Triangle’.

 

Example: Remove the oxygen and the flames go out. This is often what is being done when we talk about extinguishing a fire. An atmosphere with less than 16% oxygen will not allow a fire to burn.
