Propagation of a laser beam limited in its diameter through a reactive aerosol under thermal blooming conditions is considered. Decrease of optical cross section of particles due to burning out is taken into account within the threshold approximation. The expression is obtained to describe the velocity of the aerosol ignition wave which allows for the refraction and diffraction distortions of the beam.
