Can a fire keep going in the rain?

How do you keep a fire going in the rain?

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Before gathering wood, find a spot for the fire, preferably somewhere guarded from the rain. If you’re on a ridge with minimal scrub, use your body as a rain shield. If available, a tarp perched above the campfire also works wonders; just make sure it’s high enough to prevent scorching.

Can you have a fire under a tarp?

Hazard No. The heat can melt and warp some tarp materials. Sparks can rise up and land on the surface, burning and melting small holes into the tarp. Water can easily start to seep through these holes which degrades the water-proof aspect of the tarp. Tarps are generally not rated as “fireproof”.

How do you keep a fire dry?

Use dry firewood. All the wood you use to build your fire should be completely dry. If there’s any moisture left in the wood, it will be harder to keep a fire going. Instead, you might end up with a pile of smoking wood. If dry wood is not available, use extra kindling and tinder to combat any moisture.

Can you start a fire with wet wood?

In order to get a fire to properly start, the firewood must be complete dry. If there is no heat inside the chimney, the fireplace cannot work properly. Otherwise, there is too much moisture in the wood; and any flames which ignite produce significantly less heat than a fire with seasoned wood.
