In Minecraft I want to make my netherrack so that when it rains it puts out the fire. This creates a more realistic view of the world and I would like to do the same thing with lava or forest fires.

How can I accomplish this naturally without me having to physically do this?

Are you open to using mods? If not, I doubt you'll have success. The extinguishing of fires is in the code. Changing it would require changing the code. – Luke Feb 25 '14 at 23:28
command blocks can place and put out fire (by setting the block to fire and air resp.) – ratchet freak Feb 26 '14 at 9:31
FWIW: Rain immediately extinguishes villagers that are on fire. – John Feb 26 '14 at 18:00

Sadly, without modification, this is not possible. Rain is not set as conditionally capable of putting out fires. You would either have to enable a mod, or mess with the code yourself.

I looked for some mods to give you, but was not able to find anything concrete. I don't think that anyone has tried to implement that yet.
