When a human body is set aflame, the flame can run hundreds or thousands of degrees Fahrenheit, according to The Los Angeles Times. If a person's clothes catch fire, it can cause the flames to burn hotter and deeper.The flames cause the skin and muscle underneath to shrink, due to loss of water and blood. If the flames reach the fat layer under the skin, the fat can feed the fire. The flames also consume nearby oxygen while releasing poisonous carbon monoxide fumes. Victims are sometimes left gasping for air as they try to extinguish the flames.
