I'd love to help you Lionel, but you haven't asked a question.  I have no idea what you want to know.

I completely agree with Patty's reply: there is no comprehensible question here.


But I would supplementally add that only buildings, forests, fires (man-made, (1) for the express purpose of cooking or campfire-type recreation, and controlled, in outdoor settings, or (2) in indoor fireplaces) or candles (and maybe incense sticks) can burn down.  Firewood, the material used to make fires in outdoor settings or in indoor fireplaces, can't burn down, or at least it doesn't sound natural in English to say it that way.
