Somewhere I have a photo of a flame like that. I had a large piston compressor outside my shop with a sized piston (piston was about 18 inch diameter). To free them off I would have an oil and paraffin fire in the cylinder, the heat would expand things and the hot oil would seep down better than and penetrating oil I have ever used. Anyway I was trying a new mix in a steel bucket inside a walled area and the wind must have hit just right. A column of flame shot out of the bucket to about 8 foot high for about 30 seconds. It gave me a whole new perspective on the danger of fire.
