Subject:
Wood science question

Keith Newton
For many years, I've wondered about the sparks which fly out of my wood-stove door when I have a bed of hot coals. As I add more wood, the sparks seem to seek oxygen, because even after I close the door, they find their way out of the small crack behind the door, and small slits in the intake damper.

Is there a name for this reaction?
