feels like burning! -- or does it?

Question!

If you were to heat a piece of paper up, how much heat would it take to make the thing combust? Would it? There's no fire involved (initially), just a lot of heat (no real limit on the upper range of temperature here), and I'm wondering if it'd ever burst into flames or what.

EDIT: Answered, thanks.

Why yes, I did entirely forget about Fahrenheit 451, why do you ask? I also forgot science. And logic. And how to google anything but "heat of combustion," which didn't help.

I. Yes. Thank you, internet.
