TO ADD FUEL TO THE FIRE: meaning and examples

Good morning. Today we will look at the second query from a group of our students. Today's expression is: to add fuel to the fire It means: to make an argument or bad situation worse. Example 1: The recent killing of an Italian secret service agent by American soldiers has added fuel to the fire of the anti-war campaigners arguments. Example 2: Photographs of the actor in a nightclub with a top model have added fuel to the fire of rumours about a separation from his wife of twelve years. If you have any questions about this expression, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks once again to Chris's students for the interesting question, and thank you to Chris for passing it on to me. I hope you have a good day!
