Black vessel set alight (4)


I believe the answer is:


'set alight' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'black vessel' is the wordplay.
'black' becomes 'b' (as in pencil classifications).
'vessel' becomes 'urn' (urn is a type of container).

(Other definitions for burn that I've seen before include "northern stream" , "Combust" , "Severely overcook" , "Scottish stream" , "Destroy by fire" .)
