Fire Protection is an armor enchantment that reduces damage from fire.


Fire Protection reduces ongoing fire damage, which is normally not absorbed by armor.

Fire Protection also reduces burn time when set on fire by (15 × level)%. If multiple pieces have the enchantment, only the highest level's burn time reduction is used.

Theoretically at level 8, the player cannot be lit on fire through Fire Aspect enchantments. The only way to burn is standing in lava or fire. The initiated fire-ticks (lava: 300, fire: 150) are canceled, and only the remaining time in the fire source is added to the fire-tick timer.

Damage reduction from Protection, Fire Protection, Feather Falling, Blast Protection, and Projectile Protection stacks up to an upper limit cap (see Armor enchantments).


Protection, Blast Protection, Fire Protection, and Projectile Protection are mutually exclusive. However, if commands are used to have two or more of these enchantments on the same item, the effects stack.
