Being 67 now I was remembering when sparklers were well made & had a thick coat of material, still something that will work. I lost power a few nights ago & didn't realize it until the fire was cold so I just went on propain & back to bed. This morning I ran out & bought more coal mice, bury one towards the top & light, wait a little bit & plug the furnace in. No muss, no fuss & haven't failed me yet (knock on wood) 2 bucks for no hassles is worth it for me but it's always nice to know some other methods just in case.
Sam try this can method next time you need to relight. It works great and it doesn't care which side you come down on politically.
