we used to do the same thing when i was a boy.
it started by accident one year when a neighbor kid lit a paper bag of pop-corn on fire and then dropped it over the bridge (between Chesterfield and Anderson).
In amazement we watched as the bag continued to burn as it floated down the river. even then i knew it was the oil on the pop-corn.
We watched it for a long time. it kept burning until it rounded a bend and went out of site.
