Mythical fire creatures

One of the primary creatures that are associated with fire within mythology is the phoenix. These creatures take the forms of flaming burns that, instead of dying, immolate, only to be reborn from the ashes of their own remains. 

Another creature of fire that is well known from mythology would be salamanders. Not the real kind, the fire creature kind. The creatures are similar in ways that extend past just sharing the same name. The name for the creature does after all come from the mythical being, with the name literally translating to ‘fire lizard’.
