Players are in couples, standing in a circle formation and well spaced.
The person standing in the centre of the circle calls out :"Fire on the mountain, run, run, run."
The children in the outer circle turn and run around the circle.
Those on the inner circle stand with arms out and raised representing trees.
When the person standing in the centre says :"Fire is out", all runners and the centre player try to find a partner by standing behind a tree.
The one who does not find a partner becomes the centre caller.
All partners change places and the game goes on!
