Very often, once in the forest, tourists have to make fires to warm and cook food. But not every tree can be thrown into the fire. Burning some rocks can bring additional and absolutely unnecessary difficulties. So, first of all, it is recommended to never use fir firewood. And here is the reason.
“I have no other firewood for you,” some noble travelers will say to the passage that burning fir is not the best solution. Of course, sometimes there are situations when it is simply not possible to take another fuel. In this case, you need to take care of taking proper fire safety measures if you do not want to first burn your camp, and then get a prison sentence for setting fire to the forest. But, in fact, what is the problem, a novice tourist will ask?
The problem is that some of the firewood "shoots" when it burns. In other words, they begin to throw out small coals and burning chips from the fire at the moment of burning, thus creating potentially dangerous situations for humans and nature. It is not only the fir that shoots, but it is she who is the absolute champion in this matter. It significantly surpasses even spruce firewood, which, by the way, is also better not to use.
However, if there is no other option, then it is necessary to make a fire in the hole and make sure that there is nothing around it that can catch fire. Keep some kind of extinguishing agent on hand just in case. Better yet, do not leave the fir fire unattended. Otherwise, a burned-out tent and personal belongings are the most harmless things that can happen. However, as often happens, the real problem lies not so much in the firewood, but in the general human sloppiness.
