Explanation:
In Arabic the word has two names: Naar or Hareeq.
In Arabic script it will be written as
نار the plural of whis is نيران
حريق the plural of whis is حرائق
The first one is not the damaging type: such as when you light a fire (to warm yourself with)
But the second one is the damaging (delibarately lit) one: such as the one the fire brigade is named after.

Explanation:
From your explanation I feel it must be either of the above 2 words (versus the good translations in previous postings).

In 'back translation,' the first means: burning, combustion, being on fire, being afire, bursting into flame. The second is very similar: ignition, burning, inflammation, etc.
