Earth is the only planet we know of with a history of fire.
Despite indications of hot magmatic fire on other planets, no fire has occurred on Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, or any other planet orbiting the Sun.
The Age Without Fire: For billions of years, Earth did not know fire.
The first reference to a possible "ghost fire" comes from the middle Ordovician period, when the first grasses and liverworts produced oxygen in sufficient quantity to create the conditions for fire.
The Major Oxidative Event: About 2,4 billion years ago, the Great Oxidative Event occurred, where ancient cyanobacteria they began to generate energy from the sun, releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Although oxygen increased, it was not enough to cause combustion. This event led to glaciers, as the oxygen weakened the methane, exposing the planet to cold.
The Appearance of Fire: The first record of fire comes from the Middle Ordovician period, billions of years ago.
During this period, the first surface fires were caused by increased oxygen concentrations, which allowed the burning of plant remains.
The Evolution of Fire: However, fire did not become widespread until about 383 million years ago, when oxygen levels allowed fires to occur continuously. Since then, fire has played a key role in shaping our environment, despite the fact that fire itself can be considered "bad."
In short, fire is a ancient wonder on our Earth. From the painless period billions of years ago to the present day, fire has produced and shaped our world.
This look back at development of Fire is a fascinating journey through the history of Earth and fire that reflects the composition of our planet through time.
