Question Need help with why a flame goes out when covered with flask!!!

The experiment that I'm doing deals with sticking a ball of playdough onto a pie pan, and then sticking a candle vertically into the playdough. Next, I have to fill the pie pan with water. After that I light the candle, and I have to quickly cover it with an Erlenmeyer flask. My question is, relating to Charles Law, does the temperature inside the flask increase, along with the volume? Why is this the case? How does the water pushing itself up into the flask as the flame gradually goes out have to do with anything????
