Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Put Out Fires and Extinguish Flames

You’ll need to put out fires in Baldur’s Gate 3 several times throughout the game to complete quest objectives. However, you can’t count on there being something to extinguish the flames nearby. That means you always need to keep a way of putting out a fire on hand, and we’ll discuss the methods to do so below.

How to extinguish a fire in Baldur’s Gate 3

There are a few ways to put out a fire in Baldur’s Gate 3:

  • Toss a water barrel on it.
  • Use ice magic, like Ray of Frost, on it.
  • Use water magic, like Create Water, on it.

Unlike in many games, fire in BG3 isn’t just a part of the scenery. It can be incredibly lethal to your party or NPCs if they get caught in it. Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, fires don’t burn out naturally once ignited in BG3. So, you can’t just wait for them to dissipate. Fortunately, two of your starting party members have access to spells that extinguish flames. So, it’s not hard to get prepared to meet this inevitable obstacle.

What makes fire confusing in Baldur’s Gate 3 is that some fires don’t act like others. They’re scripted to stay ablaze even if you use one of the above methods to extinguish it. For example, there’s a fire at Waukeen’s Rest that’s part of the quest story that will continue to burn and spread despite your efforts to contain it. You’ll be racing the flames, and time to rescue NPCs. In this case, it’s all part of the quest design instead of a glitch.

Therefore, understanding the context of each fire and using a combination of tactics, tools, and spells will be crucial in navigating these fiery challenges. Always be observant and prepared, as not all fires in BG3 can be treated the same way.
