1. Raise your handiness skill (level one is enough - anything above may make the achievement harder to obtain).
2. Buy one of the cheaper fireplaces (you can find them in the Build Mode, I bought the 'Pyro-Pit').
3. Use the 'Epic Fail' karma power on your sim.
4. Make sure there are NO fire detectors in the room. Light up the fireplace and tell your sim to tinker it.
5. Eventually, the fire will spread on your sim, at this point select another sim in your household and extinguish the burning sim. Achievement unlocked.

If you're still struggling with the achievement, you might need to try this with a sim with specific traits such as clumsy, unlucky or absent minded (thanks to Onju1985 for pointing this out).

Using this method I unlocked it on my first try. Make sure to use Epic Fail on that poor sim before attempting this.
