According to http://www-spof.gsfc.nasa.gov/Education/FAQs7.html#q97", we give the name "fire" to both a bunch of glowing matter particles and a plasma, which is a bunch of molecules that are so hot that the outer electrons have been knocked off and move around freely. Fire from a lighter is not conducting electricity, fire as seen from an electrical discharge is.
