Hydrogen and Oxygen mixed put out fire, but each one separate is flammable. Explain it please?

I believe it is because the water "smothers" the flames, blocking any oxygen in the air from them.

You could also look at it like this: Chocolate is delicious (in my opinion) and so are salt and vinegar chips (also in my opinion). But chocolate-covered salt and vinegar chips would be gross! Well, at least I think so.
