Fire, a living being?

People don’t consider fire a living creature, but if you look at how it acts its rather similar to a living being. To start a fire, it requires a burnable object… something for it to feed on like wood or paper. It seems to me that would be “food”. Next fire wont survive without the key ingredient of oxygen. It also moves on its own. Sure you can move it yourself or the wind can push it around but even on a quite night it will always be moving back and forth like its got a mind of its own. Fire breaths, fire feeds, fire moves… yet not considered a living thing?
