I used a BIC lighter to light some candles, turned off the lighter and set it on the kitchen counter in the upright position. A few minutes later the smoke alarms are going off and I look and there's a 4 inch blob of fire on my counter, the lighter completely burned up and burned a big spot on my counter.
