Somebody in my department asked me this the other day and got me thinking...
What is the NFPA definition of fire?
Tried to do a little research on this but couldn't find anything. Any ideas?The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

You did very little research and time spent looking....it took me all of 3 minutes to find the N.F.P.A. definition of "fire".
1.Any instance of destructive and uncontrolled burning, including explosions.
2.Fire A rapid oxidation process, which is a chemical reaction resulting in the
evolution of light and heat in varying intensities.
