There is no free oxygen within water active to take part in the process. Water vaporises due to heat and prevents inflow of atmospheric oxygen.

It lowers the temperature of the combustible below it's flash piont and it also smothers the rapid oxygenation by holding away the oxygen supply form the combustible material or gas!

There are three ways to put the fire off:
1. Let all the oxygen out of the place
2. Let the burning substance out of the place and
3. Cool down the burning substance
Exactly water does the third part; though it has O2, it doesn't get decomposed at that time and thus stops the fire.
