Fire and Water

At the Easter Vigil, we hear the story of Noah and the story of the Three Young Men in the Fiery Furnace.

In the litany, we pray,
From all calamity by fire and water,
good Lord, deliver us.

And here, I'd always thought that was referring exclusively to house fires, lightning bolts, forest fires, flooded basements, tidal waves, and stuff like that.
