* In Literature/TheBible, after discovering there's only a single righteous resident at the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (it was Lot, the nephew of Abraham), God (through two of his angels) told Lot to leave the city. After Lot did what he was told, taking his family to escape, God did exactly what this trope says -- a rain of hellfire and brimstone reduced both cities to ashes.
** He did something different in Egypt, where He used burning hail -- in other words, ''[[LogicBomb ice that is on fire]]''.
** Aaron's sons Nadab and Abihu burn incense in a censer when God hadn't told them to. "So fire went out from the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord."
** This seemed to be Elijah's M.O. Just ask those soldiers.
** Nebuchadnezzar's preferred method of execution in the book of Daniel.
** There is [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]] if you want your gratuitous fire usage. While Hell became more associated with fire after [[WordOfDante Dante]] wrote Literature/TheDivineComedy there are a few associations between fire and Hell in The Bible itself.
** In Judges 18 the Danites while looking for land massacred the people of Laish and "...burned the city with fire."
** Under Mosaic law, fire was the standard, final "treatment" for garments or buildings that had been infected with disease/mold/etc. First, you were supposed to try water. If that worked, great. If it didn't, burn it.

* Heracles used fire to cauterize the Hydra's stumps before it could grow new heads. Or to be precise: Heracles smashed the heads with his club, his nephew Iolaos cauterized them. This technically didn't KILL the Hydra, since one of its heads was immortal. He just buried it under a rock afterward.
* Many of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent admittedly extremely varied]] world folklore about vampires feature either an aversion to fire, or immolating the vampire's remains as the final step in destroying it for good.

** After discovering that the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah were willing to [[MoralEventHorizon rape angels]], God told Lot, the OnlySaneMan, to leave the city. After Lot did what he was told, taking his family to escape, God did exactly what this trope says -- a rain of hellfire and brimstone reduced both cities to ashes.

** Nebuchadnezzar's preferred method of execution in the book of Daniel.
** There is [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]] if you want your gratuitous fire usage. Our modern conception of FireAndBrimstoneHell was actually based on Gehenna, which was a real-life trash incinerator near Jerusalem where everyone disposed of both their waste and the bodies of the worst criminals in the city so they cannot resurrect. In Biblical Text, the Lake of Fire repeatedly mentioned referred to this specific location initially ("eternal damnation" in Jesus' time specifically meant CessationOfExistence by fire as you cannot resurrect because eternal life was exclusively for the righteous) until due to [[WordOfDante Word of Catholicism]] it was later fused with the Greek concept of Hades as a FateWorseThanDeath.
