It's just done with a piece of steel wool. The steel wool is sold here in a roll, and I take a length of maybe 30 cm of it and fold it up and push it into a holder - either a kitchen whisk or just some fencing wire twisted around to hold it. Light the steel wool with a small gas torch or by touching a 9v battery to it and swing it around really fast on the end of a rope.

Hope this makes sense
