|Class 8 Chemistry Combustion and Flame||Inflammable Substances|

Similarly if we heat the kerosene a little it catches fire whereas burning a piece of wood takes a lot of time and effort. This shows that different fuels have different ignition temperature. Those substances that have very low ignition temperature and easily catches fire and undergoes combustion are termed as inflammable substances. For instance, petrol, alcohol, aerosol sprays, etc.
