I would like a translation of "Set Yourself On Fire" to Latin

This is for a mock heraldic emblem. The entire phrase is "If there is nothing to burn/Set yourself on fire".

For final portion, I came to like "IPSI IN IGNIBUS INCENDITE "? That is emphatic pronoun (instead of SIBI) dative, pl imperative verb, prep, ablative plural object of prep?

I last studied latin in 8th grade, and I wasn't that great at it even then.

FWIW I now (10 mins later) suspect that "SIBI IN IGNIBUS INCENDITE" seems correct.
