Gas and bleach explodes, but I don't know about brake fluid. I'd read up before you mix stuff that you don't know the results of. Or use small amounts.

What kind of brake fluid and bleach were you using? Chlorox brand bleach and antifreeze is supposed to create smoke and then a flame after a little while IIRC. I haven't tested this, but I was once told that this was done to light campfires at a summer camp by setting a cup of antifreeze up in a pan of pool chlorine crystals and knocked over into the pan with a .22 rifle. I'm not saying that this is true and will work but it's what ive heard. Why would you spend your money on this though? Were you trying to do something in particular or were you just screwing around?

Yes, sodium hypochlorite(NaOCl) will combust when mixed with gasoline/brake fluid/other petroleum distillates. It's in most chlorine bleaches(low amounts) and certain pool chlorination substances(higher amounts).

I know what you are talking about...but it isnt bleach that you need. What you are looking for is a chemical used in swimming pools to 'shock' the water. That is what it is called...Shock. (It makes the chlorine levels really high to kill anything in the water.) Off the top of my head I cant think of the chemical name...but I seem to recall it had calcium something...long ass name...NOT calcium hypochlorite. Mix brake fluid with the 'shock.' The warmer the two ingredients are, the quicker it will ignite. Usually before it bursts into flames a thick white smoke comes out. A lot of pool chemicals do shit like that when mixed...which is why most smart stores keep pool chemicals outside away from everything else. FYI...bleach is sodium hypochlorite (sort of liquid chlorine.) Home-use stuff is around 5%...give or take. The stuff used in pools is twice as concentrated...about 10%
