Iranian Bundahishn (Pahlavi) describes FIVE KINDS OF FIRE created in the spiritual world (chapter 18) as per scripture.
1. Fire BEREZI –SAVANG: Fire which glitters before Ahura Mazda
2. Fire VOHU FRAYAN: Fire in the bodies of humans and animals
3. Fire URVAAZIST : Fire in the plants.
4. Fire VAAZIST: Fire in the clouds
5. Fire SPENIIST : Fire beneficent which is sent in the material world to reside as fire of VARHARAAN
Fire VOHU FRAYAN consumes both water and food , it only consumes water as is in the plants. If extinguish life ends
Fire of Varharaan does not consume food or water as also FIRES VAAZIST, BEREZI-SAVANG
Ahura Mazda further created the fires FRENA-BAG, GOOSN-ASP, and BOORZIN MEHR glittering and watching the world and astral bodies with gloriousness
Furthermore these fires are mentioned in the Yasna Ha 17, 11 which begins as : YOUR FIRES, ARE WORSHIPPEDAS SONS OF AHURA MAZDA WHICH ARE worshiped as the Fire BEREZI –SAVANG, Fire VOHU FRAYAN, Fire URVAAZIST, Fire VAAZIST, and Fire SPENIIST
