The boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The range of temperatures developed from burning solid objects ranges from about 480 degrees F to about 840 degrees F. This means that water has the evaporative ability to cool the surface quite effectively at a temperature that is significantly lower than the temperature typically found on the burning surface of a combustible object.
