My husband is the king of campfires! He makes a successful campfire by starting the fire with kindling and lighter fluid under wood pieces piled in a teepee fashion allowing air to get to the fire and ignite.
Only use enough lighter fluid to soak the kindling and do not ever try to add fluid to a burning fire! We know of friends who tried this and the fire ignited the stream coming from the can and burned the person severly.
To get an extra spark, we have found that old pieces of candles (the stubs that are left over at the end of burning safely) added to the fire will get it going also.
Just remember, safety first! Enjoy a nice evening around the campfire with family and friends.
