Burning ANYTHING inside a tent is a BAD IDEA, especially when sleeping. 1) As was already mentioned, ignition sources and synthetic materials (ie. tents) are not good combinations! 2) Remember, when something burns it consumes oxygen. Although tents are (obviously) not airtight, having something consume your oxygen supply faster than it can be replenished, while you are sleeping and pumping out CO2, is not a good idea. As far as I know, the only safe heaters inside a tent are chemical (ie. hand/foot warmers) and/or electric. Hope this helps.

Open flames and tents are not a good combination.
