Fuel – part of the fire triangle?

Fuel – part of the fire triangle?

Fuel is important for a fire.

All things are comprised of chemical substances but their particular characteristics will determine how they burn.

The temperature of the ignition source must be sufficient to convert the material into fuel i.e. something that will ignite in the presence of oxygen from the air.

Provided there is sufficient of all the necessary components a fire will continue to grow.
