Solution

No, fire is not a living thing, but it does have characteristics of living things.

It breathes: When given oxygen it grows and out comes carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

It reproduces: When anything flammable is near fire, said thing also catches fire creating a new source.

It dies: When put covered in water, it goes away

Well it doesn’t have any cells. To classify something as living it has to have at least one cell. Fire has none. Therefore, fire is NOT a living thing.
According to the cell theory, the cell is the basic unit of structure and function in living things. If something is not composed of at least one cell, it is not living.
