A beautiful fire is a lovely way to encourage family interaction or conversation at your next social gathering. Getting that fire started, however, isn't always easy. There are lots of different ways to get your fire started but these Fire Starters might be the most reliable. The fire starters are blocks of wood chips impregnated with paraffin that will burn approximately 8-12 minutes, which is long enough to get the other fuel lit and get it on the way to becoming a beautiful roaring fire. The box contains approximately 144 squares.
