What is the best location for a survival fire?

Answer In a location as protected, safe and close to a wood supply as possible and try to keep it inside where it is out of the elements.

The trick is the fact that this is a survival fire. Consider it different from a signal fire, although often they will be one and the same. If location and wood supply allow, it would be best to actually have two fires: your survival fire for cooking, heat, comfort, and your signal fire for rescue because the locations for these two fires are often two very different places. What's ideal? Build your fire near water and your wood supply, protected from weather, and able to keep you warm at night.
