English term or phrase: to flick
A pair of leather gloves that has been **flicked** by flame.

Die Handschuhe haben wohl durch das Feuer Schaden genommen, aber wie wird hier flicked übersetzt?

Danke.

Explanation:
I can only imagine that it means "touched briefly by a flame", so maybe "singed" or "burnt lightly"

I have never heard the expression "flicked by flame" before.
