How long do torches and lanterns burn in DCC?

...claims that they burn for 10 turns and 20 turns, respectively. Is this listed in the core rulebook or in another source somewhere?

as far as I can tell, the book doesn't say. But really, if you're running a game you can just make up whatever seems good.

P. 73 of the rulebook: One flask of oil burns for 6 hours in a lantern.

That's it.

Oh, yeah, I kept looking for torches but could not find anything about them.

If lanterns burn for 6 hours, maybe torches burn for 3? I don't have any real-world torch-burning experience, so I can't say.

In the rulebook torches are often mentioned alongside lanterns, so I thought they can burn just as long. In the real world though, a torch will go out in 20 minutes
