No, I'm pretty confident in saying that fire doesn't have life. What you saw and detailed makes perfect sense.
The fire is built on snow...the bigger it get's the more heat it is expelling, causing snow to melt faster...the melting snow would slow the fire down...and this would go on and on till it went out, exactly as you stated. nothing abnormal here. Fire isn't alive...I.e. consious.

What else do you need to know about it it feeds it dies if it doesn't feed. And most importantly it needs to Breathe.
Perhaps it would be living in a different form...? Not one that we are accustomed to or know about yet. One that doesn't reproduce yet nature and us reproduce it for them...? I like your topic...hurts my brain to think about it though.

No. It doesn't repdoduce or have any type of consciousness.
