The persistence properties of fluctuating combustion fronts in paper were studied. Asymptotically both temporal and spatial persistence follow the theoretical expectations for the stationary case. For the short-range behaviors, the KPZ physics is irrelevant, and the first-return distributions deviate from those based on a stationary Markovian stochastic process. Instead, the physics indicates the presence of memory effects.
