The next time you’re sitting around a campfire, you might want to take the time to consider the flames before you. Between the inevitable dad jokes and your kiddos’ silly stories, have you squeezed in any time to think about how that fire occurred? There are no (more) dragons doing the fire-starting work for us. Instead, we rely on science to create the event. And, yes, fire is an event and not a thing. That’s because fire is something that happens or is an outcome of wood, paper, or other resources (the “thing”) becoming hot and releasing vapors. Those vapors become exposed to oxygen, which creates the event of a fire. Pretty incredible, right? Fire certainly qualifies as awe-inspiring. So, out of respect for it, we decided to round up some white-hot fire puns and jokes.

But before we get into those, let’s revisit the idea of how fire occurs. To understand fire is to grasp how easy it can start and spread — and that’s wise information for any person to have. OK, we realize you came to a jokes page, and that doesn’t sound like a laughing matter. But having a healthy respect for fire is part of appreciating it. Plus, it’s worth noting that not all fires are bad. Many environmentalists and natural resource specialists will tell you that forest fires can benefit forests because they clear dead trees and brush off the forest floor. This allows water, air, and sunlight to reach the soil. That, in turn, helps the forest grow new life and replenish itself.

Basically, fire is awesome. And, as the following fire puns and jokes prove, it can even be funny.
