For the fire, you could check out the SM flamethrower tutorial, and that will do you just fine

Good luck!

you can select the lattice points and key them by pressing "S" key.

Also regarding keying lattice points, or chunks of points/vertices in general:

Select the points you want to animate
Create a Cluster for them (this makes the points selectable in the outliner etc.)
Animate the clusters instead of the actual point - this will give you greater control and overview of your scene.

Good luck.
