|Petroglyph of early humans using torches|
The use of fire originated in Africa. When people migrated from there to other parts of the world, the use of fire spread. That was about 60,000 years ago. It is believed that fire began to be used for warmth during the Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 B.C. Fire, once obtained, was not always easy to preserve. At first, it was kept by burying it and keeping the ashes alive. Later, a type of slow burning stick was designed.
