# Why not water(H2O) burn?

We know that there is Hydrogen(H) and Oxygen(O) bond in water. We also know when Hydrogen come close to fire it is burst and Oxygen help to make fire alive. So when water come close to fire it will be burst and burnt. But it not happened. Why?

water is already a product of hydrogen burning in the presence of oxygen and combining with it and releasing large amount of heat. if we want to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen we have to supply an equivalent amount of energy which is some time done by electrolysis of water by supplying electricity.
