Who discovered fire?

Hi Bhavisha,

The fire was discovered in the Early Stone Age by Homo erectus.

We don’t have an exact answer and evidence that how Homo Erectus discovered fire. 

But have some assumptions which suggest that, when lightning would strike a forest and create a fire, it probably intrigued and amazed them and may lead them to use pieces of flint stones banged together to create sparks, or by rubbing two sticks together generating enough heat to start ablaze.
