Health Tip: Building a Campfire?

Keep it small
(HealthDay News) -- Creating a campfire can be fun and practical, but it can lead to disaster if you don't follow some basic safety rules.
The National Wildlife Federation offers this advice:
Use dead pieces of soft wood lying around to start the fire, including pine, cedar or fir. Make sure you keep the fire small. Keep water close by, so you can extinguish the fire when necessary. Make sure there is no debris nearby that could ignite. Build the fire inside a fireplace, stove or fire ring. Always stay with the fire when it is lit. To extinguish the fire, pour water, stir the ashes, and pour more water. Make sure the ashes are cold when you leave the fire.
