The children in Pearl Class learned how to light fires and how to keep the fire burning. For a fire to burn successfully three things are required- FUEL, OXYGEN and HEAT. These three elements together are commonly known as the fire triangle. Remove any one of these elements and your fire will go out or will not light in the first place. It is therefore important, especially in the initial stages, to protect your fire from the weather and from the dampness of the ground. To do this you can light it within the shelter of a log framed fire pit.
