I just got a new digital camera - a canon powershot A510.. Just thought id tell everyone to rush out and buy one. Its amazing this little thing..the pics are crystal clear, and the exposure can be set manually to up to 15secs, making it ideal for photographing fire. You can set it to take shots continuously every few seconds too, even on the self timer, should you have no-one around willing to play photographer..

Highly recommended... biggrin

heres one i made earlier...

I'm using an EOS 350D, with complete bulb I can take photos back to back (up to 14 in a row at 8 meg)

If you wanna see what it's like with fire;
