Basic fires are fire buildings that were added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[]

Basic fires are most useful when the player is away from home and needs reliable protection against the cold or quickly wants to cook some meat. The Basic Fire is one of four types of fires, that player can build. It can serve as a source of light, warmth and can be used for cooking meat. To prevent fire from being extinguished, you can put additional leaves into it by standing close to fire and pressing C.

Cannibal bodies can be burned on it to get bones and skulls.

The player should be careful, when building them in areas where cannibals patrol, because they'll be attracted by the light.
They can burn the player and all other creatures, so caution is advised, especially in hard and hard survival mode.

There is a fire warm whole house system that was introduced in v0.32 that allows a whole house to be warmed with just one fire. This allows the player to be warm without standing right next to the fire. Log Cabins were later added in v0.33 to receive the effect.
