>>NARRATOR: Here are a few tips for building and putting out campfires so that this
doesn’t turn into this.
[crackling fire sound]
Build campfires away from flammable materials like dry grass and leaves.
Pile extra wood away from the fire. Keep plenty of water and a shovel nearby.
Be sure your match is completely out. Feel for heat before discarding it.
Never leave a campfire unattended.
Drown the fire with water. Stir the remains, add more water and stir
again. Be sure all burned material has been extinguished
and cooled. If you do not have water, use dirt.
Continue adding and stirring until all material is cool.
Feel all materials with your bare hand to make sure your fire is completely out.
