The element of Fire is one of the four elements, the others being Earth, Water and Air. It should be understood that the Elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water – are not the same as dirt, oxygen, flames and H20. The Spiritual Elements together make up everything in life (Exemplore).
Fire is associated with the energy of life and in many traditions is considered the mouth of the Gods as it is used to deliver offerings. Fire is the soul, the driving force, it is energy! Fire is the passion behind creation, the obsession behind destruction. The necessary destructive force that brings about new life. Fire is creative and destructive, desirable and dangerous, necessary and threatening (Witchipedia).
The element of Fire is connected to, amongst others, energy, inspiration, love, passion, leadership. In rituals, Fire is represented in the forms of burning objects, love spells, baking, and lighting candles and fires. Fire is also the element of change. Actually it represents magick itself.

Ritual: Fire is active, warm, dry, bright and masculine. It can be represented on the altar with a candle or a fire bowl or a blade. Traditional Wicca hails Fire from the South, although it can be called from any direction one feels it connected to, usually the direction of the Sun. If you live in the Southern hemisphere, you may want to call Fire from the North since the equator, and warmest part of the planet is North of you. Fire is sympathetically related to candles and blades. These items are often use to represent fire in rituals and on altars (Witchipedia).
