IF you already have your fire generator then just place each particle generator, depending how much space in between each generator in a translation to something like this.

for(int loop=0; loop<360; loop++)
{
//glPushMatrix();
glTranslatef(cos(loop), sin(loop), z);
GenFire(...);
//glPopMatrix();
}

This is for 2D.

To generate fire there are several good articles on Gamedev that will help you.

Never done it myself...and with a nickname like Fahrenheit you would think I had..hehe, but I have been impressed with the Fellowship of the Ring contest entries on NeHe. Plenty of fire and rings there for you to get ideas from.

My useless 0.02yen...

I would just create a particle generator where the particles originate from a random point on the ring and fly up a bit, getting smaller and perhaps fading out.
