    I'm going to assume you mean in a fireplace or wood stove and with matches? Think small.. ..make a support of two thick pieces layed parallel ..add crumpled newspaper in center... then make a teepee of small twigs and sticks.over the paper..if your firewood is really aged and dry you can add larger sticks and logs on to the support pieces [if not wait until teepee burns down to hot embers then add small logs ], you have to go a little slow at first until you have a nice HOT pile of embers ..remeber to cross pieces as you add...fire needs to get air from underneath.

    I am a fireman and expert at putting out fires. From my observation you must have some sort of combustible material and a source of ignition coming in contact with that combustible material.

    Works every time.

    Gasolene works great. Also, if you have any extra cushion (polyeurathane???) from a sofa. That works excellent. Just ligght a chuck of it and throw it atop the wood. It will drip down and stick to the wood and burn for 5-10 minutes.

  • OK ms. pyro, you need some matches and kerosene.

    pour kerosene all over that which you wish to set on fire.

    then light a match, drop it and run like hell in that order

    Fire requires three things.

    Heat, fuel, and oxygen.

    combine all three, poof, fire.

    throw gas on what you want to burn and light a match. Make sure your a few feet away when you light it.
