No, but burns indefinitely on the top surface
|Catches fire from lava||
Netherrack is a rock-like block found in the Nether.
- Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.
Netherrack generates as part of bridge and treasure room bastion remnants.
In Bedrock Edition, netherrack generates as part of nether portals spawned floating.
Netherrack is mostly used as a cheap building block. Because of its abundance and softness, it is often used to construct temporary structures that acts as scaffolding, blockage, or other purposes.
When netherrack's top is lit on fire, the fire burns indefinitely.
