In the sentence:
He reached out to put more objects on the fire.
What is a better word for "objects". I was wondering if there is a generic term specifically for something that you burn on a fire. It is not necessarily wood. It is not necessarily fuel either. Think for example of someone who is burning "objects" out of protest or revenge.
I do not even know where to search for such a word. If you can give a resource where I can search for words by meaning, that that would be very helpful too.
