Answer:

It is an oxidation reaction. This special type of hydrocarbon oxidation is commonly called combustion.

"Burning" is an old and generic term form for the combustion of organic material. Chemically it is an oxidation-reduction reaction. Other oxidation reactions that are not considered combustion often occur between metals and oxygen, such as the formation of rust (iron oxide) from pure iron.
