A reformer, which is configured to prevent flash back generated from a reaction part in a catalytic oxidation reaction is disclosed. The reformer includes a first reaction part having a first chamber and a first catalyst disposed inside the first chamber, the first reaction part configured to generate heat by burning a first fuel. The reformer includes a second reaction part having a second catalyst, the second reaction part configured to be heated by the first reaction part and the second reaction part further configured to reform a second fuel. The reformer includes a flash back prevention part disposed on an upstream side of a flow of the first fuel and air, the flash back prevention part configured to introduce the first fuel and the air across a predetermined interval from the first catalyst.
