Fire sponge party trick

Your cool uncle approaches you at a holiday party carrying a plate filled with water, a glass, a napkin, a piece of tape, and a match. He tapes the napkin to the bottom of the glass, lights the napkin on fire, and places it upside down on top of the plate. As the flame starts to burn out, a large volume of the water begins to draw into the glass, emptying the tray.
