Water suffocates the fire, it needs oxygen to keep living. Oxygen is its fuel. When you put water on fire, it takes away the oxygen.

Do you know the "Fire Tetrahedron". You need four things to create fire: Heat, a Fuel Source, a Chemical Reaction and Oxygen.

If you able to remove any one of them, the fire will distinguish. Water removes heat from the fire as well, which results in its extinguishing.
