Lacarnum Inflamarae is the incantation of a charm used to ignite the cloak of a witch or warlock by shooting a fireball from the tip of the caster's wand[1].

Hermione Granger was known to be proficient in the performing of this spell, using it in September of 1991 on her Potions Master, Professor Severus Snape, at a Quidditch game when she believed him to be jinxing her friend Harry Potter's broomstick[1].

Etymology

The incantation "Lacarnum Inflamarae" appears to be derived from the Latin "lucerna", a noun meaning "cape" or "cloak"[2] and "inflammo", a verb meaning "torch" or "inflame"[3].
