Create the fire bed. Pick a site away from anything flammable such as bushes and trees. A dirt bottom layer is optimal.
Gather tinder materials. This is the material that will start the fire. You can use leaves, pine straw, paper, etc. Just make sure it is dry.
Gather Kindle material. This needs to be small sticks of wood that are dry.
Gather fuel wood. This can be bigger logs that will burn longer.
Place tinder in the center of the bed and light with a fuel source such as a lighter. Place the kindle above it in a tee-pee like manner.
Place fuel wood above the existing fire in a tee-pee like manner as well. Keep adding fuel wood as needed to sustain the fire.
