Fire in the shape of a human that can hurl fireballs.

Fire Men are building destroyers who live in the magma sea. When killed, it leaves behind a bar of ash which can be made into lye or potash. They can pop out of your magma workshops, so it's advised to have some defenses around. Despite being made of fire, they won't burn your wooden cages when inside them.

Great care should be taken when fighting fire men - while their fire breath attack tends not to do any damage, actually killing one will release a large burst of flame which will instantly melt the fat off of anybody in range, causing them to quickly bleed to death.
