Noxious gases = ARSINES
burning = IN ("alight" in Chambers, as in "the fire is in, it hasn't gone out")
lifts = *** (plural of arsis = "literally, a lift, an up-beat")
There is a discussion of the puzzle here:
https://www.crosswordsolver.org/forum/843608/offset/40
The parsing would appear to be "burning is a two letter word for a fire which has not gone out included in an obscure word for lifts used in the context of raised or lowered intonation in verse feet".
