The short answer is yes. For coal combustion this implemented as a model.

However, what is if your fuel is not coal dust (e.g. piece of wood). Well, the things might get difficult quite fast. Even that is possible with right assumptions. I guess this is not a newcomer project.

You may regard it as a gas phase combustion and put a boundary source at the contact between wood and air.
