What happens if you microwave a piece of paper?

Here’s what I discovered about what happens to paper when you put it in the microwave: When you microwave flat paper it gets extremely hot, above 100ºC (212ºF) but when lying flat it’s unlikely to catch on fire. However when it’s scrunched up it can get hot enough in sections to set the entire thing on fire.
