Hooray for a non-smouldering fire
Attending the Halloween fireworks at Valleyview mall the other night, I was pleasantly surprised to see the bonfire constructed with a log standing seven feet high in the centre of the fire. This central combustible pillar evoked a strong stack effect that drew virtually all the pyrolized smoke/gasses from the surrounding combustibles into the flame path. This made for a very hot and efficient/clean fire that many of us were happy to gather around after the fireworks had finished.
I’m told that the local 4-H club built the fire. So my hat is off to you all for such thoughtful work.
