If its a small fire and if you have a big enough jar just cover the whole flame. The jar should be covering the candle/small fire. The jar should cut off the oxygen one of the essential to fire.

If theres a fire this is the first thing that comes to mind is WATER!!! Well the larger the fire the more water youll need so the size ranges. Water puts out fire but can be evaporated and reelight if the fire is hot enough. Just pour the water on the fire. Aim at the embers that were the fire is.

Step 4: Baking Soda

yeah, after i asked that question i lit a match and did it, its pretty fun and doesnt hurt unless you leave ur fingers on it.

 Heck, you don't even need to lick you fingers first, thats the way I do it (I am not responsible if you try it that way and burn yourself). Just be careful.

I've been camping and had one of the other guys get up in the middle of the night and pee on our fire. We were all very mad at that guy when we woke up cold and discovered that the fire had "gone out." It works, though!
