How to start a fire with a flashlight

You never know when you could find yourself in a situation where you need to make a fire. Whether you’re stuck in the woods or need to create a signal somehow, knowing how to build a fire could be the difference between life and death!

These easy and simple to follow instructions will show you how to use your flashlight to start a fire. When building a fire always be careful and only use this method in an emergency situation.

Step 1 – Items

- Flashlight
- Tinder or dead grass and leaves. Just something that will ignite safely
- Secondary tinder: a pile of dead grass for the campfire
- Common sense!

Step 2 – Break the glass cover

Break the glass cover of your flashlight and get all the glass out of it. Do not damage anything else.

Step 3 – Take out the bulb and break it

Break the glass of the bulb, but be careful not to damage the filament inside.

Step 4 – Put it back in the flashlight

Screw the remains of the bulb back into the flashlight.

Step 5 – Place tinder

Put the tinder or dead grass and leaves into the top of the flashlight. Make sure to fill it to the top.

Step 6 – Turn it on

It may take a few tries to work, but it should work in the end if you’ve done it right.

Step 7 – Move the fire

Move the fire over quickly to the secondary tinder on the ground. This should create a larger fire!

There you go, you’ve built a fire using your flashlight!
