The mistake that the man made while trying to build a fire for the second time was that he made the fire in the open. He took twigs from the tree and dropped them directly under the fire. As he shook the tree, the snow on the boughs fell down and blotted out the fire. He got scared as it was very necessary for him to warm himself. He tried to build the fire but in vain. With numb hands he tried to protect the fire from pieces of moss and in doing so, he actually put out the fire.
