Two men, Watson and Holmes

872.1K Views

Two men, Watson and Holmes, are out in the extremely dry forest. They are completely surrounded by a large forest fire on one side and a dangerous cliff on the other. The wind is blowing the forest fire towards them and the cliff. The fire will reach them in about one day.

Holmes turns to Watson, “I have matches, berries, and enough water for a day. We aren’t going to die.” How can they avoid getting swallowed up by the forest fire?

    They can start a fire of their own with the matches and the wind will blow that fire in the same direction as the forest fire and they can take refuge in the section of the forest they burn down.
