Strange faces in smoke and fire

"Within the flames of every fire there are spirits that guide the tongues towards fuil. It is these demons that cause such wide spread destruction when they are not carefully watched."
Also, the demons of the pentegram may explain fire demon, too.
The original pentegram stood for five forces of nature in each point:
Earth (Ground, Soil)
Later, the wicca slowly tranformed into full blown witches, and that is where the demonic way of the pentegram comes into place, so there are Fire Demons, as well as others.
I'll have more, If you want more info, just contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will do more research. Happy haunting.

Well, it is quite possible to have elementals. Afterall natural spirits can have forms in Fire/Water or anything natural.

The Monarchs of Demonium:
ARACHNE: Known best as Lolth, the Demon-Queen of Spiders, fallen member of the Seldarine. There is, in fact, some question of whether this being is a demon at all, as her place among the elven pantheon is a confusing one. Scribes have been dispatched to Celene to glean the truth from the gray elves and their massive library in Enstad, but one cannot expect too much information from the tight lipped and ancient scholars of the Olve.
Lolth is known to have a vested interest in Oerth itself, and has, on at least one occasion, attempted to bring part of the planet into her own layer of the Abyss. I refer, of course, to the troubles in Sterich some years ago, the full import of which still cannot be determined. The recent Giant Troubles of the recent war have not helped matters, and it is unlikely that we will be able to learn more of Lolth's plans in the area while Istivin is controlled by hill giants and the like.
The more paranoid of my colleagues suggest that Lolth had a hand in the Giant Troubles, as well, but it should be noted that these individuals are the type to check under their sheets for agents of the Scarlet Brotherhood before retiring every evening.

Tales and legends among the sahuagin, a hideous race of sea- humanoids unfortunately rather common off the shores of the Flanaess, suggest that Demogorgon was once a servant of Sekolah, the sahuagin god. Though the Prince of Demons holds great sway with the ixixachitl (another evil aquatic race), and is said to hate the sahuagin, this tale is, at best, hearsay.
Though there are several cults to Demogorgon in the Flanaess (and probably more still among the uncivilized residents of the Amedio and Hepmonaland), he enjoys no known human priests. With what seem, by all accounts, to be ixixachitl priests (!) appearing on shipping lanes throughout the area, many fear that the Prince will soon enjoy a sizable clergy of humans here on Oerth and elsewhere.

MARDUK: Very little is known about this being, save that he is said to be "King of Fire Demons," suggesting that he is possibly an ascended Balor. There is definitely a benevolent god of the same name who makes his home in the Outer Planes, and these two are definitely as different in demeanor as is possible. He wields the awesome Firefan, which is counted among the most powerful of Abyssal artifacts (and is likely closely tied to his rapid progress through the ranks, so to speak).
Of all the monarchs, Marduk is the least involved in the affairs of the Flanaess, though sailors tales suggest the worship of a powerful "fire demon" among the Wuga tribesmen, south of Hitaxia far to the southwest. As that land is as unknown to us in Nellix as is the Abyss, I will deal with such tales in the future as time and exploration allow.
