Burnt residue (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ash

'burnt residue' is the definition.
(residue of a fire)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for ash that I've seen before include "Tree - effect of burning" , "Knotty - - (Ken Dodd)" , "Tree with winged seeds" , "Oleaceous tree" , "Get the residue" .)

I've seen this clue in the King Feature Syndicate, The Telegraph, The Sun and The Times.
