To better understand the process of fire caused by conducting wire, based on the study of overload of the low-voltage wire, the theoretical analysis of flame spread mechanism of overload-wire was proposed, and the functional relationship between flame shape characteristics and flame spread speed, current, and inclination angle was studied. The results show that: (1) the theoretical model of flame propagation can well reflect the changes of thermodynamic parameters in the process of flame propagation, and it is in better agreement with the experimental results. (2) When the current value is constant, with the increase of the inclination angle of the wire (0°-90°), the flame is elongated along the wire direction, the width of the flame base increases, and the angle between the flame front and the wire decreases. When the inclination angle is fixed, with the increase of the inclination angle of the conductor, the flame shape becomes more "high and wide" and the flame height increases at the same time. (3) When the current is constant, the flame spread rate increases with the increase of wire inclination angle; when the inclination angle is constant, the flame spread rate decreases sharply with the increase of current.
