Wood burning while parting

keith zimmerman, Normal, IL
>I experienced something I have never experienced this weekend while turning several tea Light holders. When parting the completed piece off the spindle, the parting tool actually burned the wood. I have never had this happen before. The parting tool is a Crown 1/16".
Anyone have any ideas how I can prevent this from happening? Perhaps I am using it incorrectly.
