To Build a Fire

What causes his second fire to go out?

Why does the man have difficulty rebuilding the second fire? What ultimately happens to the dog and the man?

The man builds his second fire under a spruce tree. The snow shakes loose (capsizes) and snuffs out the fire. His hands are so frozen that he cannot move them to start the fire. Ultimately the man freezes to death and the dog heads for the camp of men.

Thank you!!

No worries!
