Fires move fastest uphill because heat rises. Experiment: Light a match and hold it with the tip up and time how long it takes the flame to move halfway down the matchstick. Then light another match, hold it tip down and time how long it takes the flame to move halfway up the stick. Be careful not to burn yourself!
