WHY DO WE WRAP A BLANKET AROUND A PERSON WHOSE CLOTHES CAUGHT FIRE

In order for a fire to burn, all three elements of the fire triangle must be present: heat, fuel and oxygen. If any one is cut off the fire will be put out. As the fire blanket completely surrounds the person whose clothes caught fire, it seals the person’s body surface around the fire and cut’s off the oxygen supply to the fire, thereby putting it out. Hence fire blanket acts as a fire extinguisher and stops the fire from spreading.
