It won't.

But it's an easy way to start a fire.

It will help dry out any wood you find and make that wood burn. Not sure I would take the big one myself, the smaller one (about a pound) would do the same thing on a smaller scale. Once you get some wood burning it will dry the other wood out if you watch the fire good.
