I dont think prefects needs water to put out fires. However if someone is working at a factory/industry sometimes they are on fire and need to rush to the nearest water source to put the fire out.

And is it necessary for people on fire to find water?

No, I don't think so, it's just a visual thing.

The tutorials state that prefects need nearby access to water in order to put fires out.
However, I've started scenarios that didn't have wells or immediate access to water, and the prefects still put out at least one fire on their own.
These days, I typically place a prefect, an engineer, and a well near the outer edges of my housing clusters. Even if the prefects don't need water, it's a good idea to have some wells around, just in case there are issues with the pumping station, reservoirs, or aqueducts.
