This is The Fire Triangle. Actually, it’s a tetrahedron, because there are four elements that must be present for a fire to exist. There must be oxygen to sustain combustion, heat to raise the material to its ignition temperature, fuel to support the combustion and a chemical reaction between the other three elements.Remove any one of the four elements to extinguish the fire.The concept of Fire Protection is based upon keeping these four elements separate.
