Fire is the light, heat or smoke produced when something burns. Generally, wood or charcoal is burnt to produce fire for heating or cooking. Our forefathers produced fire by rubbing two stones against each other. This was the way fire was first generated. Fire causes burns and wholesale destruction of life and property. Buildings can catch fire and get completely damaged on account of some short circuit or electric spark.
Fire also refers to the feeling of passionate emotion or enthusiasm that a person exhibits and which drives him towards something tangible and worthwhile. In the words of William Butler Yeats, “Education is not filling of a pail, but it is the job of lighting a fire.” Robert frost considers fire to be the potent cause of worldwide catastrophe. He had remarked, “Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.” Fire can be extremely dangerous and causes wholesale destruction of life and property.
