Default Re: Silly question

Fact is, the coals usually aren't hot enough to create ignition. They'll make stuff smoulder and melt, but actual ignition requires a significant amount of heat, oxygen, and volatile, combustable fuel. If you dropped a coal on the carpet and then fanned it for several minutes, it might get hot enough to ignite your carpet, but it's unlikely.
