Fire is a harmful non-solid block.
- Sometimes, in Survival when you walk into a fire and then walk out very quickly you will take a little bit of damage, but not stay on fire.
- Curiously, if a gravity-affected block such as sand or gravel falls on a block of which the top is on fire, it will extinguish the fire rather than drop itself as an item, despite fire being a non-solid block.
- Fire uses two texture files, one for the inner fire and one for the outer fire.
- End crystals will continuously generate a block of fire at their location, if the crystal is placed or generated in the End. This fire is incapable of spreading.

When placed, fire will burn for a short and randomly determined amount of time. If nothing flammable is adjacent to it, the flames will die out. If water touches fire, the fire will be extinguished.

This can happen at a distance of up to one block downwards, one block sideways (including diagonals), and four blocks upwards of the original fire block (not the block the fire is on/next to). Therefore if the player is using fire to build a fireplace, caution is needed. Blocks in the way will not prevent fire from igniting blocks above it⃢₀ₔso even if you protect your wooden roof with cobblestone between it and the fire, the fire will completely ignore that cobblestone.

Fire can spread onto and burn away any flammable block. On the other hand, fire that is not adjacent to any flammable block will not spread, even to another flammable block within the normal range.
In the following table, the higher the encouragement, the more quickly a block will catch fire if fire is available to spread there. The higher the flammability, the more quickly a block on fire will burn away.

Certain blocks can catch fire from nearby lava, though they will not burn away:
Fire will burn out after a while on its own; be that as it may, the player may want to extinguish the fire as soon as possible to prevent damage. You can use water to extinguish the fire. Punching or hitting the side of a burning block will extinguish the fire block on that side. Hitting fire with a tool does not reduce the durability value for the tool. Placing blocks on the fire will extinguish it. Fire can also be extinguished with splash and lingering water bottles.
Mobs on fire will be extinguished when in water or in a cauldron containing it. In the latter case, one layer of water will disappear.
Fire will extinguish much more quickly if nothing flammable is present, and very soon after it consumes a flammable block immediately beneath it.
- Fire has an age property that determines how it extinguishes, ranging from age 0 when the fire is set, and growing to age 15. For fire older than age 3, if nothing flammable is adjacent to the fire, or if the block below doesn`t have a solid top surface, the fire will be extinguished by the next block tick. At age 15, as long as there isn`t a flammable block below the fire, a block tick will have a 1⃢₁₄4 chance to extinguish the fire.

- Rain will affect fire if it falls directly onto the fire, or into the four adjacent blocks. Specifically, no matter the age, any block tick has a 20⃢₀ₓ65% chance of rain extinguishing the fire, depending on the fire`s age: 3 percentage points per age of the fire.
