How To Put Out A Fire

How To Put Out A Fire

This video gives you instructions on how to make sure a fire that you started in the woods is completely extinguished. Use your hands to feel the fire after you pour water on it.

I'm going to show you how to put out a fire when you've been lighting one in the woodlands or anywhere in the world. You need to make sure it's fully extinguished before you leave the area and the best thing for that is water. So, I've got about five liters of water here.

I want to make sure I spread it nice and evenly around the fire, like that, okay. So, I've poured plenty of water on the fire. I'm going to make sure everything's cool and out.

And the best way to do that is to get your hands in there so I know that's not on fire anymore. It's all nice and wet. Once you've done that, take your ashes and just scatter them like this.

Take the little pieces of wood left over and just scatter them off in general directions, making sure that all the ends are nicely extinguished. And then, finally, where there's a scorch on the ground, just bring some leaves back over so there is absolutely no trace that there was a fire here. And that's how to extinguish a fire in the woods. .
