We have all experienced the frustration of trying to get a fire going with newspaper and kindling. Now you don't have to fuss with all of that. Just use these paraffin-impregnated blocks underneath the timber and it will burn long enough to get the logs going. You can enjoy beautiful fire with little effort and no ink from the newsprint all over your hands. Fire starters are made from paraffin and wood chips so they are environmentally friendly as well.
