Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a 5x5x5 meter room. The room's walls, ceiling, and floor should all be made from concrete in order to prevent SCP-XXXX from burning through them. SCP-XXXX is not to be ignited without the approval of at least one Level 3 researcher. In an event of a breach, please follow Protocol XXXX-WG in order to extinguish SCP-XXXX. In an event that any staff are taken over by SCP-XXXX-A, security personnel guarding SCP-XXXX are to be equipped with water-based weaponry found in the crate outside of SCP-XXXX's containment cell.
Revision XXXX-1 There will now be a 2-meter deep pool of water surrounding SCP-XXXX's containment cell in case of a breach.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a lighter that when ignited, emits a multicolored flame (currently named SCP-XXXX-A). If SCP-XXXX is ignited for more than one minute, SCP-XXXX-A will grow exponentially, engulfing anything it touches. If a subject is engulfed by SCP-XXXX-A, they would immediately begin to suffer from third-degree burns all over the body, causing death in less than 30 seconds. SCP-XXXX can burn through any material in its path, except concrete, though it is yet unknown why this is the case.

After dying, the subject's corpse will reanimate, with the multicolored flames covering its body. This entity (currently named SCP-3091-1) is extremely hostile, and will begin to seek out other personnel within the vicinity. SCP-XXXX-1 is sentient, but has not shown any signs of sapience. SCP-3091-1 does not seem to be able to communicate, but has been reported to laugh or chuckle when it encounters any staff.
When touched by water, SCP-3091-A will try to retreat to SCP-3091 by seemingly "jumping" out of the host body. SCP-XXXX-1 will store SCP-XXXX in any intact clothing pockets, otherwise grasping SCP-XXXX in a hand. Though, it is also possible to destroy an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 with water, though it is extremely difficult to do so, as SCP-XXXX is very agile, and any other normal projectile or weapon will melt as soon as it makes contact with SCP-XXXX-1.
Additionally, even though SCP-XXXX-1 only manifests when SCP-XXXX-A takes control of a host, it seems to have the same conscious with every host. Testing has revealed that SCP-XXXX-1 would try to breach containment the exact same way, kill any staff the same way by [DATA REDACTED], and laugh the same way when it detects its prey.

Incident Log 2/17/2018: 2 months and 6 days after initial containment, SCP-XXXX had already figured out a way to escape. D-51767 was called on for testing, and when he entered the containment cell, SCP-XXXX ignited on its own accord for the first time, and SCP-XXXX-A traveled through the air, touching and engulfing D-5176's body. When SCP-XXXX-A took control of D-5176's body, it managed to run past the door before it closed, and attacked everyone outside its containment cell. After the breach alarm was set off, the nearest security personnel were summoned to eliminate SCP-XXXX-1. They sprayed SCP-XXXX-1 with specialized water-based projectiles, destroying SCP-XXXX-1. New containment procedures were enacted. See Revision-XXXX-1.
