What do you call the fear of fire?

Why would you be scared of that?


Answer by  timetravel (114)

Pyrophobia is the fear of fire. One could be scared of fire if one has been burned, literally, in the past, or if one has generalized anxiety disorders which cause panic over things that can actually hurt someone. Or, if one has experienced being in a fire, or having one's house burned down.

The fear of fire is scientifically called Pyrophobia, it is a natural and rational fear, as fire can cause severe damage to skin tissue.
