Start a single player "Hot Letters" game mode game (Play Custom->Hot Letters). Before every turn, shake he bag by moving the left thumbstick up and down until it catches on fire. Don't shake too long because the tiles inside will burn up. Quickly choose 'Deal All' to get the tiles from the bag. They should look like they're on fire. Quickly make a word using at least one of the hot letters before they cool off. Making short words quickly is the key to getting this. Repeat 5 times and finish the game for the achievement.
Chad and JessieThanks for the great solution!!! Love it!!! A couple of things to add:
1. Its really hard to know if the letter was still "on fire" not just "hot" when you have completed the word. There is a noise to let you know, but it isn't obvious. I suggest making at least 10 words that you think are "on fire".
2. You don't have to finish the game by placing all the tiles. You can just place you word and hit "Y" to end the game. It still counts as a win and if you really did get 5 "on fire" words then you should get the achievement. At least it worked for me.

Mickey BurnsDo all the letters in the word need to be on fire?

Also, do all 5 have to be in the same game?

Sashimi X13Only one letter in the word needs to be on fire when played, and all have to be in the same game. Hope this helps.

StartSmallssDoes the achievement pop up as soon as you do the 5th word or do you need to finish that game first?

Sashimi X13You can quit the game by hitting 'Y' and get the achievement, but make sure you got at least 5 words, because it's not obvious when you get them.

Leo AscendentYou get it when you place the fifth word now. So just keep doing it.

GottleI can confirm it, you don't need to finish the game, the achievement pop up as soon as you confirm your 5th "flaming" word

klobeastI want to add, for any who may be as thick as me...shake the bag until it physically catches fire...I thought that when it started to fizzle it was good enough. No, keep shaking.
