Butane ~300 °C (~600 °F) [a cool flame in low gravity)
Charcoal fire 750–1,200 °C (1,382–2,192 °F)
Methane (natural gas) 900–1,500 °C (1,652–2,732 °F)

At what temperature Fahrenheit does wood burn?

Firstly, at about 320 degrees Fahrenheit up to about 500 degrees, the wood will start to burn and you can see it change in a way that can’t be reversed (char marks, cracking, shrinking, etc.) and at some point (anywhere above about 390 degrees) the wood will catch fire.

What is the hottest fire can get?

The hottest fires are from oxyacetylene torches (about 3000 degrees Centigrade) that combine oxygen and gas to create pinpoint blue flames.

What is the lowest temperature a fire can be?

In theory, it can be too cold for fire. At a temperature of absolute zero, which is -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit, there is no energy present at all. At this temperature, molecules don’t even vibrate within their own space.

Can you burn fresh cut wood?

No matter which way you cut it (or split it with your trusty log splitter), fresh wood just doesn’t burn right. Fresh-cut wood has a high moisture content, which makes it hard to get burning. It also gives off more smoke.
