Wood fires are yellow, right? Well, typically, but not necessarily. All hot bodies emit "black body" radiation in a color spectrum that depends on temperature: red for fairly hot, orange for hotter, yellow for really quite hot, all the way up through white for, well, white-hot. Most wood fires burn at about yellow-hot.
