Masterful is right about the traits, but fire doesn't have any DNA or RNA, so it's not living. It's just a chemical reaction.

The seven characteristics of life include:

responsiveness to the environment
growth and change
ability to reproduce
have a metabolism and breathe
maintain homeostasis
being made of cells
passing traits onto offspring

You could argue that fire holds three of these traits, the arguments would be forced and weak of course.
Although It needs all seven to be considered living.
