It is obvious that the writers don’t understand the properties of flammable fuels. In Nam I was a Combat Engineer 1371 and secondary mos 2336 Explosive Ordinance. After Nam I worked for an FX company LA. My job there was “fires” gasoline lifts, explosions, etc. oil fuel sources, contrary to many a movie scene (including some of mine) will not ignite in the presence of a flame. A tipped over kerosene lantern will not actually set the bunk house on fire. The best way to extinguish a kerosene or diesel oil torch when it comes off stage is to dunk the still flaming torch in a bucket or tank of the fuel. The fuel needs a wick device of some sort to allow the heat from the flame vaporize the fuel in close proximity and the vapor is what actually burns.
