My dad was a hardwood floor finisher. He once put a coat of lacquer finish on a floor and walked out to his truck to clean his applicator. He did not know a plumber had been in earlier and turned the heat on in the bathroom. While he was at his truck the house blew up. Didn’t burn though. Just blew all the windows out. One big bang.

Fumes will certainly combust.

And so will dust. Admittedly, dust must be in high concentration. I was helping empty the dust bag from his sanding machine one day and a trash pile that was burning about 30 ft away ignited the dust all around me. Just singed my hair and scared the crap out of me, but no real damage.
