As stated here, being on fire means you are doing well, and here we see that you can be commended as an MVP for being on fire for a large portion of the time.
This answer shows that destroying non-player things gives you fire points, but what all do I get points from, and how many fire points do I need to be on fire/stay on fire?

    @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft that question asks what being on fire means, this question asks about how to stay on fire/gain fire points. – Dragonrage Jun 13 '16 at 17:06

    @twobugs Remember, two distinct questions with similar answers are still two different questions. – pydsigner Jun 13 '16 at 17:44

    How can I stay on fire? you ask? By listening to my mix tape of course. – MonkeyZeus Jun 13 '16 at 18:01

To be on Fire, you need at least 250 fire points (fire). Your fire meter can hold infinite fire, but displays 350 as max, and you fire will decay at 5 fire per second.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain that killing Junkrat's Rip-Tire gives 50 fire. – AproposArmadillo Jun 13 '16 at 16:56
  • @Shaffanhoon Possible, I will have to science this again. I'll add a "?" to it for now. – Dragonrage Jun 13 '16 at 16:58
  • @Shaffanhoon I believe that his tire has 100 hp - if you get 50% of elimination damage as fire - 50 fire would only make sense. – pastrypuncher Jun 13 '16 at 20:05
  • Dying seems to tank the on-fire meter, is this just due to the natural loss of 5 per second? – Cassius40k Jun 13 '16 at 21:45
  • @Cassius40k for me I usually can stay on fire after dying if I wasn't just barely on fire. Death lasts 10 seconds, so you lose 50 fire to that, plus 5 per how ever many seconds you take to get back to the fight and start getting more fire. I have stayed on fire for an 2 rounds straight on KotH even while dying several times each round, so I think it is due to the natural decay, though it is something that should probably be scienced a bit more. – Dragonrage Jun 13 '16 at 21:49
