New Delhi: The dawn of civilization saw one of the biggest and most useful innovations discovered by humankind – Fire.

The stone-age theory of how two stones, when rubbed together in a particular way, marked the invention of fire is known to the entire world.

But has anyone ever tried a modern method of starting a fire? We doubt it. No, we're not talking about lighters and gas stoves, but lemon and nails.

Did you know that you can start a fire with just a lemon and a handful of nails? It might sound funny to you, but it can very well be done! Along with a lemon, you will need zinc nails, copper clips, a couple of wires, a steel wool and you're sorted.

This method can also be used as cool science project for your child's school, however, practicing safety measures is evident while doing it.
