Latvian Fire or Swedish Torch

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


A long-burning fire using one log


Log, axe, wire


See picture.

Split the log into four, split out the thinnest bit of each segment, and bind back together with wire.

Make a fire on top and the fire will gradually burn the insides of the fire. You don't necessarily need to bind the log.

A Swedish Torch could be made by making a cross shape split
