Why is a blanket used to extinguish a fire engulfing the clothes of a person

this is done because as to cut the supply of oxygen to promote the burning

A thick blanket is immediately wrapped around a person's clothes when it catches fire because as you that the oxygen present in the air is needed to act as a fuel to the fire, putting a blanket between the fire and the air cuts off the the oxygen supply, therefore putting out the fire and acting as a extinguisher.

Hope this helps you Reenu !!
