“What kind of fire leaves a room damp?"/"A humidifire.”

A “humidifier” shouldn’t be spelled “humidifire,” but there are puns. A riddle was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 12, 2019:

Q: What kind of fire leaves a room damp?
A: A humidifire.



Wikipedia: Humidifier
A humidifier is a device, primarily an electrical appliance that increases humidity (moisture) in a single room or an entire building. In the home, point-of-use humidifiers are commonly used to humidify a single room, while whole-house or furnace humidifiers, which connect to a home’s HVAC system, provide humidity to the entire house. Medical ventilators often include humidifiers for increased patient comfort. Large humidifiers are used in commercial, institutional, or industrial contexts, often as part of a larger HVAC system.
