Make up a word for fire?

It's for a fantasy book.

Update:

Before anyone says 'make your own ideas', I'm not intending to copy anything, this is just for a bit of inspiration.

    Look up words for fire in foreign languages. One of them may strike you as just right for your book.

    If not, jumble them up; pick alternate syllables; play anagrams.

    It's far, FAR more satisfying to create your own words than to use other people's words, even just 'for a bit of inspiration'.

    Zagip. And ask; don't command us.

    For a fantasy language, any combination of vowels and consonants will work. If you intend to write a fantasy book, you must have the imagination to make up words. Apparently, you don't.
