    false, oxygen is an accelerant. Your fuel is the flammable part.

      agreed. although not flammable by itself it is required to allow fire to burn. w ithout it no fire.

      this does bring up a question in my mind...i have a mapp gas and oxygen torch (one of those little guys you can buy at home depot or sears), takes the standard tanks. how well would it work with a propane cylinder attached?

        As Tony 597 stated the answer is false, oxygen is an accelerant. it can cause a extreemly hot flash fire, but only if a flame, such as a cigarette,is present. Hence "No Smoking" when pure oxygen is present.

          Oxygen is an oxidizer. It is not an accelerant.
