Why you can't put out a elecctrical fire with water?

With a wood fire, wood gets hot. The wood turns to a gas. Oxygen from the air mixes with the gas from the wood and they create combustion. When water is added, it cools down the wood. It also turns to steam blocking oxygen from the air from getting to the wood. So water does two things. It makes the wood so it will not get hot enough to turn to gas. It stops oxygen from getting to the wood. With an electrical fire, the source of the fire is the electric current. It causes the heat. Pouring water on it will not stop the electric current and stop the heat. It will simply give the electricity more places to go. The first thing to do in case of an electric fire is turn off the electricity.

What happens when you start a fire with a moist wood?

Trying to start a fire with damp wood is very difficult. When I backpack I always carry some tinder (dry shavings) to start a fire. Wet wood will not burn unless the fire is hot enough to evaporate the water that is in the wood. You can burn damp wood on an already burning fire but it will not burn as hot. Wet wood tends to smoke a lot and may go out on a small fire that does not have a good coal base. I have had to use damp wood to start a fire before but I had to shave down the wood until I found dry wood inside. Once you get a small fire started gradually add wood until you can get a hot fire. Too much wet wood at once can put out a fire. Not a good thing when you are cold and wet. Be patient.

How do you start a fire with fire wood?

Fire is made by the sun, if you want to go camping, and make a fire from wood, get a bunch of wood and you only do this in the daytime before the sun is gone. And pack one or two magnifying glasses. Put the magnifying glass in front of the sun from were you are. And do this when it is very hot outside. Then the sun will shine through, and it will heat up the wood and then you have to wait awhile and then, fire will be on the wood. THATS HOW YOU MAKE FIRE.
