Campfires can be extremely dangerous. They are solely responsible for a number of wildfires in the forests and a small mistake by a few people can take a number of lives. It is your responsibility to extinguish the campfire that you have turned on before you leave the area. Sometimes it seems that the fire has extinguished but it has actually not as the ashes keep burning. The fire can reignite later and the flare-up can result in a huge fire when you have already left the place. To extinguish the campfire in the best way possible, follow the guidelines given below.
