flash(-)over / flashover
Explanation:
e.g.:

"Electrical switchboards often incorporate high voltage components and pose a risk of flash-over conditions."

"The first focus of Fire Loss Reduction is to eliminate flashover risk cost-effectively.

Flashover is the dramatic and sudden transition from a fire spreading across surfaces within a room to flames distributed throughout the volume, and is accompanied by a sudden increase in the rate of heat release and the extension of flames out the upper portion of open doors and windows."
