backdraft

Definition

backdraft rate
(Noun) A sudden burst of flame after a fire uses up all the oxygen and replaces it with flammable gases within an enclose area. When someone tries accessing that area, the fire inhales the needed oxygen and an explosion is caused.
Usage: Jeff thought someone planted a bomb in his house. It turns out an arsonist lit a candle, closed all windows and doors, therefore causing a backdraft.
