Answer :

Fire is useful to us in the following ways:

● It is used to cook food.


● Fire is used to warm our houses in winter.


● It is used to generate electricity.


These are some of the major uses of fire which supports the statement that fire is useful to us.


But if it gets out of control, it can be dangerous. It can burn our houses, forests etc. It kills and injures hundreds of people every year. Also fire causes emission of smoke and poisonous gases (sometimes) which cause pollution. Due to all these reasons fire can be said harmful to us.
