Most cigarette lighters contain butane which reacts with oxygen in the air to form carbon dioxide and water vapor, as shown in this reaction equation:
2 C4H10 + 13 O2 → 8 CO2 + 10 H2O
As can be seen in the equation, the chemical elements involved are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), and oxygen (O).

it contains an organic fuel, which can be naphtha or butane, which is ignited by a spark.
why? to light a cigarette, or start a fire.
