Fire Lays

Lesson plan (36:18) - A fire is not simply a fire. There are many different types; fires for cooking on, signalling and survival. You need a different fire for jungle environments than you do in the north where the temperature can drop to below -40 degrees C. We select the most useful fire lays and show you how to build the right fire for the right situation.
