I learned a new word from magazine, "dedicate", and shown me an example.

Much of their time will be dedicated to finding the one who started the fire.

what is this sentence meaning? and "started the fire"? is it a idiom or a phrase? Does it mean that they are in camping and want to cook something and need to fire?

    Whether "start the fire" is literal or metaphoric depends on the context. What was the article talking about? – Lawrence Jan 11 at 1:59
