NCERT Solutions for Class 7 English Honeycomb Chapter 8: Fire - Friend and Foe

Early Man and Fire
Early man must have found the fire to be dangerous and frightening. Early men used fire to protect themselves at night from animals that frighten them and burn the woods to feel warm. The fire must have been a mystery for an early man, but it is known today that it results from a chemical reaction. When oxygen present in the air combines with carbon and hydrogen present in the fuel, energy is released in heat and light, which is what is fire. To make fire, fuel, heat, and oxygen are needed. Wood, coal, gas is fuel; oxygen is available in the air. However, to make fire, heat is essential, and a piece of paper doesn't catch fire until heat is supplied to it—every fuel burns at a particular temperature, which is also called 'flashpoint or kindling temperature. That is why early men used two stones to form friction and cast against each other to produce fire.

Fire: A Friend but a very Dangerous Enemy
Fire is a boon, but only if it is kept under lock and key and can be dangerous if it goes out. It is used in our daily activities for various activities like cooking food, burning candles, and so on, but it can cause damage life, houses, and even forests if it goes out of control. Water can control fire by taking away any three of the things required for burning it. Water can stop the fire immediately by taking away the fuel. Wind helps the fire to disperse the ashes in the air.
