Fire, in the Chinese Theory of the Five Elements, has many facets.  Other than being understood as heat and light, it is also known as the Li trogam, the number 9, the shape of a triangle, and the direction of South.  Any color within the red spectrum is considered fire and summer is the fire season.

Fire people are ruled by their emotions.  It is their nature to interpret the world through their feelings and be perfectionists.  This perfectionist side of Fire both helps and and hinders their progress through life.  The fortunate attributes of Fire people include spiritual radiance, unlimited giving and cleverness as well as clarity of comprehension and perception.  Their strong egos propel them towards great advancements, achievements and accomplishments.  They approach life with great passion.
