Okay, there seems to be a good deal of similarity between this trope and Betty and Veronica. I think maybe the key to this ought to be more in personality (an aloof or calm and collected or logical Ice versus a more impulsive or emotional and passionate Fire). The Ice, assuming he (or she) is the lead's Blue Oni, can still be the Childhood Friend if they make a great foil, casting him as the 'safe' one, while the Fire can contend as the 'bad boy' (or Veronica) whose actions are edgy and dangerous.

With that in mind, reading from The Hunger Games example, I'd say Gale is the Ice and Peeta is the Fire, personality-wise.
