 The can is also filled with liquid nitrogen, which cools down the can and allows oxygen to condense on the can, and drip into the erlenmeyer. The can is also filled with liquid nitrogen, which cools down the can and allows oxygen to condense on the can, and drip into the erlenmeyer.
  
-The erlenmeyer, now containing liquid oxygen, is taken out of the container and matches are dropped in. The first few matches don't have to be lit, they will just serve as fuel.

The first few matches don't have to be lit, they will just serve as fuel. Eventually the matches are lit, resulting in an intense fire. While the oxygen is burning, more matches can be added to make the flame last up to 30 seconds.
