Fire | Sunday Observer


Fire is a good servant, but a bad master’

Fire was discovered by the stoneage people. It was an unexpected discovery. One day a stoneage man rubbed two stones and there was a spark. From that day fire became a faithful servant to human beings. They had many uses from fire. They made many tools, started to cook and in the winter season, they use fire to keep warm. They became more civilised and got used to boil food and eat. Fire is very powerful. Even today people have many uses from fire. Burning garbage and cooking are some of them. We can destroy germs and keep our environment clean with fire. Therefore, fire is very useful to us, But burning fire without care is dangerous as it can destroy anything in a moment.
