Campfires appear as stone rings, with alternating small stones and large stones. There is a blazing fire in the center, with its center white, and a few sparks trailing off around the end.
Enemies are unharmed by the fires, but the ice cream characters will die upon touching one. Campfires can be temporarily put out by blasting out ice and then smashing it. It will, however, start up again after a few seconds. If there are several campfires in a line, there is always a space the player can stand between them, and not get hurt.
When playing in two player mode, a campfire can be permanently put out when one player is killed by the fire and the other one is still alive.
