Fire can create some interesting zones as a manner of control. And as far as resistances go, there are ways with fire to ignore resistances and that's where you go with fire. For instance, a mage with pyromancy school ignores fire restistance outright from level 1. Makes them very striker-ish compared to other wizards/mages. Problem is that many of the power are not ally friendly...
