I received this question yesterday.

I would not write the sign for "FIRE" with the "Cupped Hand with
Spread Fingers". That is the wrong handshape.

The fingers are straighter than that. Please see some of the
different possible versions below in my answer ;-)

The movement of alternating of the fingers is captured in the
movement symbol itself, and not in the handshape the
bending of the knuckle joint is there in the writing of the
the movement symbol: << File: %less054.gif >> << File: less054.gif >>

I see the file attachemt about the ASL "fire"... And I might add to both
hand same time with "fire" and both hand move up the same time... ASL:
Burn up
