    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?

    I don't think it's water, I believe he's dumping liquid wax onto the fire.

    It's the same thing that happens when you put water on a grease fire.

    Well, one thing's for sure, this enlightenment is useful. Now I know that I shouldn't attempt to use water to put out a fire fed by electricity, one fed by grease, or one fed by wax.

    Don't use water for any fire-type where the fuel will float! Wood fires are 'safe' because the amount of water you pour on them is not enough to displace their weight, with liquids like petrol, grease and wax, this is not the case.
