Four Candles, not Fork Handles, but four candles to economically heat a room.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brHqBcZqNzE

A few years back that was exactly how I used to heat my G/H down the allotment. Basically using T lights and any old candles that came to hand.
Even when the candles burn out the pots retain the heat for sometime.

Karens just told me about your post and we're definitely going to use this method to keep our shower block warm.

To quote Del's uncle Albert,

"During the 1939-1945 conflict with Germany".  

We used this method of heating in our 'Air raid shelter'
