Lacquer fumes/smell?

Is the smell of lacquer flammable? I painted a small box in my room a few hours ago and it still smells, so I closed the door and left 1 window open to avoid the smell traveling through the house. If I let the room air out for 2 days and it still smells but I open the door and the smell travels through to the kitchen, and then I turn the stove on will it be dangerous? I live with my family so I need to get rid of the smell and any potential danger ASAP.

    Concentrated vapors can be flammable as it says right on the can.  They are not a fire danger the way you describe.

    The fumes are not flammable at any distance from the lacquered surface, so don't worry about that.

    Just make sure you have good ventilation so the fumes do not build up and become too unpleasant.
