I observed this as well with a miner being chased by a fire man - despite being hit with dozens of bursts of flame, he never took any damage. However, once my steel-clad legendary axedwarf killed it, all of his fat melted off and he bled to death, so maybe it's another temperature transfer issue.

Fire men burst into flames when they take damage - and this fire seems to work quite well. It's just the fire balls that are noneffective.

Ah, that's part of what's happening to me when trying to port Spirits of Fire forward from - their fire attacks are useless.

The other half is that the FLAME template seems to have some issues keeping itself coherent, and hand-to-hand attacks don't work very well, although it's a little difficult to tell without extensive testing as burning damage isn't reported in combat logs at all...

The good news is stepping into a running stream causes it to dry up as expected.

This is basically resolved in the newest versions.
