A uniform lower bound for the energy involved in the propagation of a flame is given. Such a bound is important for safety considerations. In the integro-differential model the spherical flame originates from a point source which supplies a finite amount of energy over time. It is proved here that, independently of the form of the heat source function, a minimal energy is required for the propagation of the flame. The effect of a spark is then studied.
