The article says "higher temperature makes the fire burn faster" but aren't combustion reactions exothermic? Isn't heat a product? Doesn't that mean more heat on the products side of the equation will hinder the reaction from moving forward (more products = reaction moves slower). Don't exothermic reactions favor lower temperatures?
