Why are humans still drawn to fire after thousands of years?

Humans have long been drawn to fire; our ancient ancestors used it for warmth, protection and cooking.

In fact, fire was critical for our evolution.

But thousands of years later, with all our modern electric lighting and cooking facilities, fire has become a comfort rather than a necessity in the developed world.

So why then are humans still fascinated by fire?

One suggestion is that humans are born with an instinct to learn how to build and control fire, and if we don't get the chance to master it, we remain attracted to it as adults.
