Question and answer
why do you think igneous rocks are called fire rocks?
Igneous rock (derived from the Latin word igneus meaning of fire, from ignis meaning fire) is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic rock. [ Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. Igneous rock may form with or without crystallization, either below the surface as intrusive (plutonic) rocks or on the surface as
extrusive (volcanic) rocks. ]

User: why are igneous rocks called fire rocks?

User: what are rocks from dried-up seas made by?

Weegy: Igneous rocks are called fire rocks because the fire blades into the process and the heat inside makes the lava induce air and the lava will make fire inside of the igneous rock.
