If someone casts Hellish Rebuke on someone, does anyone in contact with the target catch on fire too?
You point your finger, and the creature that damaged you is momentarily surrounded by hellish flames. The creature must make a Dexterity saving throw. It takes 2d10 fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, the damage increases by 1d10 for each slot level above 1st.
There is nothing in the descriptions about contact other than “the creature that damaged you is momentarily surrounded by hellish flames.” That “surrounded” suggests a sort of area effect, but it doesn't specify anything about whether or not this spell does/does not spread through contact (that is to say, whether the "surrounding flames" also affect anyone within the radius or in direct contact with the target).
