DETONATION is a quick and explosive form of fire. [...] DEFLAGRATION is a slow catching fire. Ordinary fire and most explosions are instances of deflagration. Deflagration fires are usually controllable and can be harnessed.[...] Combustion takes different forms. When a decomposition reaction or combination reaction releases a lot of energy in a very short span of time, an explosion may occur. Deflagration and detonation are two ways energy may be released. If the combustion process propagates outward at subsonic speeds, it’s a deflagration. If the explosion moves outward at supersonic speeds, it’s a detonation."
