Fire paste is a useful chemical putty that is used to start or fuel emergency fires. Fire paste comes in small blocks, each with an integrated igniter. To light a block, the user simply pulls a tab on the igniter; five seconds later the putty flashes alight. The paste will readily ignite other inflammables, and a single block will burn bright and hot by itself for almost 30 minutes.
