Tom Digby, in his mailing list, mentioned having attended a memorial for the 60th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.
...I was given reason to wonder if salamanders (the fire elementals, not the reptiles) like nuclear bombs. Is it a case of "the hotter the better" or is the fireball of a nuclear explosion too hot even for them.?
Fire elementals might like as much fire as can be had. However, they might not hang around where nuclear weapons have been detonated because they don't get along with radiation elementals.
