Fire Tetrahedron

Elements


The fire tetrahedron represents what is needed for a fire. All four elements must be present at the same time in order to sustain a fire. A fire will burn until one element is removed. The four elements are:
  • Chemical Reaction= Consuming of Fuel and Oxygen to Produce Heat and Light as Byproducts That Serve to Keep the Fire Burning
  • Fuel= Something to Burn
  • Heat= Something Hot Enough to Ignite the Fuel
  • Oxygen = 21% is Needed for Optimum Burning (That is What We Need to Breathe)
