I've read in a faq. That fire can't spread through walls....
Is this correct?

Does this mean that when fire spreads to all spaces of a room it stops there?

Can fire pass through door?

Thank you

The reason why it can't go through walls is specified in the Walls section of the rules (only effects that specifically state they ignore walls ignore walls).

None of the other types of connectors have similar exceptions. Thus, if the spaces are adjacent, they are available for Fire.

So yes, Fire can spread through doors. It can also spread through impassible edges and secret passages.

It's all in the reference guide.

Under Fire:
Quote:
place one Fire token in a space adjacent to a space that contains Fire.

Under Adjacent:
Quote:
Two spaces are adjacent if they share a border, a door, an impassable border, or a wall.

Under Secret Passage:
Quote:
Each space containing a Secret Passage is adjacent to each other space containing a Secret Passage.

So fire can spread to any adjacent space, with this exception listed under Wall:

Quote:
Effects that affect adjacent spaces cannot affect spaces through walls unless an effect specifically allows it.

Since the fire effect doesn't specifically mention walls, fire is blocked by walls (but nothing else).
