Symbolism of various things

1. A character of mine is having a dream in which she is at a ball. She recognizes only one person; a girl she has class with. The other girl is wearing a red dress (with small hints of black) to symbolise strong emotions (ex: anger, passion, etc.) and black to symbolize death. Would anyone here know anything of what fire is symbolic of? I made a guess at fire = Hell = evil/negative (as I want the second girl to have 'dark' symbolism around her) but as this assumption is based off of Christianity, I want to see if there are any other meanings associated with fire as well so I don't make a fool out of myself.

2. While I'm at it, are there any other symbols for negativity or evil, possibly death, that I could use? The less obvious the better, as I don't want the first girl to figure it out too easily.

3. What would be good symbolism for something bad happening in the near future? (Near future as in a couple of months away). The first girl is wearing white, to symbolize innocence/purity, etc. and so I figured that simply having the dress change from white to black would suffice, but I want to see if there's anything else I could use.

Thanks in advance. :)
