The Fire Charge Icon
|Uses||Lighting things on fire|

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 a Dispenser, and it will subsequently light the object it touches on fire. (Confirmed in the HatFilms 1.2 Trailer). The Fire Charge will not always go straight, though.
Fire charges, compared with Flint and Steel, are renewable, but they require the user to gather its most important ingredient, blaze powder, by killing Blazes, along with Gunpowder from Ghasts or Creepers.

- Ghasts shoot the icon of Fire Charges, but the item itself doesn't have the explosive effect, although it will still light the target on fire and deal damage.
- Like the Flint and Steel, right-clicking on a Nether Portal with a Fire Charge will activate the portal.
