This fire is one of the first that Montag has seen used in the traditional sense. This fire is used for warmth and light instead of destruction and chaos. Montag finds it interesting that a fire can be used for good things, for the perpetuation of books rather than destruction of them. It is a warm inviting fire that is conducive to conversation and trading of portions of memorized books.
