What exactly is a fire?

Fire, wood, soot, burnt Close up of a piece of wood that was apart of a house fire.

Fire by definition is a state of combustion in which materials or fuel are ignited in combination with heat, oxygen and flame giving off light that produces burning.

The outcome of a fire can cause conflagration. Meaning: the destruction of an immense amount of area.

Oxidation, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor are the leading roles in the “fanning” shall we say, of the out of control blaze. The flame itself is what you physically see.

Depending on what substances cause the scorching the color and the intensity will be distinct.

Carbon dioxide and water releases energy which is minor in comparison to the other ingredients.

Bottom line is FIRE is EXSTREMELY HOT and nothing to take lightly. Once it starts, it only takes a moment to get it going and when that happens, you will not know the extent of destruction it will bring.

Call your local Fire Department to put out the flames. Then, call SERVPRO to help with the cleanup.
