The quotation comes from BBC双语新闻讲解附字幕:比利时首例病危青少年安乐死_2016年下半年BBC新闻 - 可可英语

Quotation: A week after a devastating fire broke out the packaging factory in Bangladesh it is still not being totally extinguished. The head of the fire brigade told the BBC that the blaze was being stoked by inflammable chemicals in some corners of the multi-storied building. 34 people are known to have died.
Hi everyone! I try to make the bold part clear. Does it mean "inflammable chemicals were keeping the blaze burning"?
