tinder-dry conditions sparked fears of a conflagration in many drought-devastated communities
But, filled with misplaced bravado, I decided this was the right time for a proper conflagration .
In the divine realm, fire symbolizes the universal conflagration of the apocalypse which will destroy men's sinful bodies.
I trust this was done, as I myself observed the licking flames of the conflagration .
The kitchen shop on the high street went up in flames and so great was the conflagration that the entire building collapsed.
I may not have mentioned my pyromaniac tendencies before, but one thing leads to another and so soon we had built not so much a bonfire as a conflagration .
That spot caught fire and the conflagration that resulted caused major damage to the building.
That fire can become a huge conflagration , or it can be quickly put out.
While the fire is still burning, fire crews attending the scene have brought the conflagration under control.
They feared that a conflagration would quickly follow, devouring cities and killing millions.
