Make a melee attack with a weapon against a creature. On hit, the target suffers the attack's normal effects and fire leaps to a different creature you can see within 5 feet of the original target. The fire's damage equals your spellcasting ability modifier.

At 5th level, the attack deals an extra 1d8 fire damage, and the flame deals 1d8 + your spellcasting ability modifier. Both dice increase at 11th and 17th level.
