Fire is important for many

Fire is important for many reasons. In the Artical the Discovery of fire long time ago people ate rotten food. When Homo Sapiens Discovered fire humans where able to eat cooked food. This tells me that fire has an important role for cooking food. In how coyote stole fire story teller 3 said, ''And from that time forward ,humans were warm and safe through the cold winter .'' For example this shows that fire also has another important role to keep us humans warm . lastly in the Discovery of Fire the author states ," Fire gave us light. No longer was activity limited to day light . "For example fire has another important role by giving us light . this reminds me of when I saw my mom cooking food .When she turned on the oven and I   saw fire then she put a pot on top of fire. It didn't catch on fire when she put the food in the pot and it was making the food not rotten and makes it cooked food . In conclusion the whole thing is about why fire is important by giving us light ,and heat to keep us warm and prepare food.
