Is that not done with a base fire model and decals or particles for flames?

AmenMoses is doing some cool stuff on the particle emitter side.

If you invent the HoloDeck I'll make you a REAL 3d fire.

Until then I'm afraid you're stuck with faking it.

Like this:

A combination of 3 different particle effects and manipulation of 3 dynamic lights.

We need some fancy new particle shaders to improve the effect, I'm trying to learn how to accomplish that but it's a steep learning curve at present.
Been there, done that, got all the T-Shirts!
