Select a flame brush then select the text curves and call paintEffects->applyBrushToCurves. Then edit the brush and change the colors to blue (from orange).

I've working on a little video for my brother in law right now that uses flaming text. Don't know if this is any good for you?

Beware if on dialup, it's 1.3mb's zipped, divX 5.02.
