Fire on Ice Explained

Posted by MNAngler On January - 30 - 2010

A friend of mine read my Fire on Ice post and clarified why it isn’t dangerous to have a fire on the ice.

He explains that fires don’t actually burn that hot at the level of the ice because there isn’t as much air underneath the wood as above it. That coupled with the ash acting as an insulator against the heat keeps the fire from burning a hole in the ice.

Thanx, BigSkyAngler, for explaining how/why it works.
