WARNING fire is hot and dangerous be careful! Thank you tm121998 for building the fire when I took the pictures.
Step 1: Safety
Always have a hose or a fire extinguisher on hand.
Step 2: Make a Lightable Base
To make a good fire you need a strong base. For this I lay down two logs. Next place pine needles inbetween the logs.
Step 3: Make a Fire Lay
Next make a good fire lay. I use a log cabin fire lay. To make this place sticks on top of each other until it looks like an old log cabin house. For this I use scrap wood from our wood shop.
Step 4: Light It Up
Just drop a lit match in the pine needles and watch the flames grow.
Step 5: Share the Fun
Enjoy this fire by inviting friends and family to enjoy a cook out with s'mores.
Step 6: Putting the Fun Out
Remember that hose I told you to have out? Use that to put out your fire. keep spraying the fire until it is cool to the touch.
