How to disable fire spread in Minecraft


You know when you build a nice fireplace in Minecraft:


And THIS happens?

Yeah, Minecraft’s way of handling how fire spreads makes close to no sense. This is the reason why, in most of my maps, I just disable it altogether. But how do you do this? It’s actually very simple.

Keep in mind that, If you’re playing on a singleplayer map, you need to have cheats enabled to use this procedure and if you’re on a server, you’ll probably need to be an admin. Note that if you don’t have cheats enabled, you can turn them on by following this procedure:

If these conditions are met, open the chat box and type the following command:

/gamerule doFireTick false

This will permanently disable fire spread on the map or server. If you ever wish to re-enable fire spread, simply type:

/gamerule doFireTick false

That’s it! I hope this post helped you out!
