What's the difference between Fire & Evolution?

So my wife is in the final semester of college and is student teaching this semester.  She is teaching a class of kindergartners and one of the lessons she has to cover is fire safety.  As she was going through her lessons (and thinking out loud) I thought to myself; It's acceptable to teach children of fire safety and how to retard potential damage by fire, but didn't God create fire?  Fire is the cornerstone of eternal turmoil that Christians believe in with their damnation in Hell, but it is acceptable to teach children how to destroy God's creation of fire and yet even though we have science saying that fire needs 3 components to survive and is nothing to be played with, these same people frown against the science of evolution.  It is this kind of hypocritical attitude that continues to drive our educational system further and further into the ground.  Why is it so difficult to understand that their "beliefs" are theirs and not necessarily everyone else's and that their "beliefs" are on the same level of those we learned in Greek mythology?

You can't cook your dinner on an evolution.
