The ignition temperature of wood decreases with repeated heating and age.


Working on old buildings (for us in the U.S. >120 years) I have learned you need to be extremely careful in areas of the buildings that have been subjected to repeated high temperatures, such as attics, roof underlayments and rafters. Using a power tool of most any type on those materials can easily bring them up to ignition temperatures. An 800 year old attic beam would probably ignite at an extremely low temperature.
