There is nothing worse in Minecraft than having one’s whole wooden home burn down due to an untimely fire spread. Like in real life, fire in Minecraft is not easy to extinguish, especially after it’s already done considerable damage to one’s creations. While chucking buckets of water may help put out rampant fires, it isn’t exactly a joy to have water flowing everywhere. Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to put an end to such calamities, once and for all. Read on to learn how to turn off fire spread in Minecraft.
How to Turn Off Fire Spread in Minecraft
To turn off fire spread in Minecraft, players will need to first have cheats enabled before loading in their world. Once enabled, open the console and type the command, “/gamerule doFireTick false.” Bear in mind that all Minecraft commands are case-sensitive. After pressing Enter, fire spreading will have deactivated, and wild flames will no longer be a problem.
For those managing a Minecraft server, this console command will produce the same result. By turning off this feature, players do not have to worry about unexpected fire spread or pyromaniac griefers. This safe option enables players to be more creative with designing unique fire effects using log building blocks. For example, creating a wood stove or chimney would only have been possible with the in-game Campfire, but now neighboring log blocks will not catch on fire thanks to this command.
Suppose a player or server admin wishes to reactivate fire spread in Minecraft. The console command must be typed slightly differently to turn on fire spreading, with a change made only to the final word. Input the command, “/gamerule doFireTick true” for fire spreading to be re-enabled.
Minecraft is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One X|S, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS.
