Stefan burning.

Fire is a method of killing that involves the burning of a subject with an open flame. This is a method which can be used to harm supernatural species such as vampires, werewolves, hybrids and witches. The most common way this method is used usually involves restraining the movement of the subject, dousing them with an accelerant before lighting them on fire. Thus, killing them from immolation. Witches are able to cause spontaneous combustions through magic.

  • Original Vampires cannot be killed with fire as mentioned by Elijah although, it is unclear if they can still be harmed by it.
  • It is unconfirmed if fire can kill hybrids. However, Tyler Lockwood, a hybrid, mentions that the only way to kill him is through decapitation or heart extraction, so this is unclear.
  • Despite their ability to control fire, witches are able to be burnt to death.
  • Naturally, vampires and original vampires burn in the Sun.
