    Fire is a word used to describe the burning (rapid oxidation) of a fuel. = = The fire is the process by which 2 (or more substane), the fuel and oxygen, chemically react changing them to other substances.  The fire itself is not a substance and has no molecules, it is the chemical change taking place.

    Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen. If hot enough, the gases may become ionized to produce plasma.

    Fire/flame are particles of white hot carbon.

    What part of "fire" are we looking at?  The oxygen, the fuel, the heat, the flame, the ashes, or what?

    I'm not convinced "fire" is even a substance. (How much does "fire" weigh?)

    Only compounds are composed of molecules.
