How far away should highly combustible materials be from any welding or cutting?

To determine

The distance which should be maintained between any welding or cutting area and a highly combustible material.

Explanation of Solution

There is a very high risk of fire if highly combustible materials are put near the welding area. An appropriate distance should be maintained between the welding area and the highly combustible material because any small spark can ignite the highly combustible material. This may lead to a raging fire.

It has been practically analyzed that a spark originating from welding can fly a distance more than 35ft (or 10.7m )
