A Salamander birthing from its fire

Salamander fire[1] was a term used to describe a magical fire that had given birth to a Fire Dwelling Salamander. Once a fire had produced a salamander, it would continue to birth new salamanders until the fire was extinguished.[2] Therefore, when dealing with hostile salamanders, it was wise to extinguish the salamander fire rather than focusing on the salamanders it had produced.[2][1]

Left to its own devices, a salamander could live for up to six hours outside of its fire if fed pepper regularly. A salamander would die instantly once its salamander fire has been extinguished, however.[3]
