ᴹQ. narta- v. “to kindle” (Category: to Light, Kindle)

ᴹQ. narta-, v. “to kindle, *ignite, inflame, set fire to” (Category: to Light, Kindle)
ᴱQ. purya- “to set fire to”
ᴱQ. tunda- “to kindle”

A verb in The Etymologies of the 1930s for “kindle” derived from the root ᴹ√NARTA of the same meaning (EtyAC/NARTA). This root is probably just a causative verb formation from ᴹ√NAR¹ “flame, fire”, more literally “*make fire”. Hence I think this verb can be used in the general sense of “*ignite, inflame, set fire to”, etc.
