A Fire Charge is an item that was introduced in Minecraft 1.2. When right-clicked, the block selected will burn, even if it's not flammable. It may be used by admins on SMP servers to punish griefers and hackers (probably while in their Spawn Jails). Fire charges may also be shot through the use of Dispenser, and will subsequently light the object it touches on fire. (Confirmed in HatFilms 1.2 Trailer). The fire charge will not always go straight, though.
- Ghasts shoot the image of these, but the item itself doesn't have the explosive effect, although it will still light you on fire and do damage to you.
- Like the flint and steel, right-clicking on a Nether Portal will activate it.
- Unlike flint and steel, a fire charge cannot activate TNT.
