Start a roaring fire in minutes without dangerous liquids. Manufactured by residents of the Department of Human Services St. Peter Regional Treatment Center, Fire Starters use a combination of wax and wood shavings that is safe and easy to use. They can't flash or explode and there is no chemical odor. They will burn for about 20 minutes. Fire Starters come in three sizes: a large bucket holds 60; the box contains 30; and the package an even dozen.
