Fire is the result of destructive power of flames, which have rich symbolism both in culture and in dreams. Provided this element is used to warm the room or illuminate the dark, it is positive. However, the flames "devouring" the house, the forest or the man are terrifying. It is even more astonishing that the dream about fire can also have a positive meaning.
