"Rough Magic" Flare onstage

    I'm looking for some help from someone more technically savvy them me. We are doing "Rough Magic" and there is an important moment where a character runs onstage with a lit safety flare and burns a page torn out of a book onstage. I have no idea how to do this. Both the flare and the page burning are referenced in the lines there and later and the page burning is very significant. Anyone done this before and have a solution? Any ideas?
