We can prevent forest fires by putting out our campfires after we’re done with them. Also, calling the firefighters when there is even a small forest fire. We can also prevent them by not letting the fire spread. One way we can keep forest fires from spreading is to throw water on any fire that you didn’t make on purpose (or that you didn’t make at all), as long as it is small. When you are camping, you can also put a lid on the fire if your soup in the pot catches on fire. Fire is kind of like humans. It needs air to live.
