Many, many years ago, people used a stick
, a large piece of wood
and dry leaves to make a fire. They used fire to cook meat and to get light and heat.
Today, people use fire in many different ways. At home, we use fire to cook food and boil water. In factories, workers use fire to melt metals to make things of different shapes. Factory workers also use fire to make glasses.
Fire can be very dangerous. Every year, hill fires burn a lot of trees. This is because there are many careless people. They leave burning cigarette
ends or do not put out their barbecue
fires. People may be seriously injured or even lose their lives and homes in a fire. We must be careful with fire.
