Right click on the layer and enable time-remapping. This will allow you to "make it longer" by either duplicating frames or using a freeze frame after it ends.

I just noticed you want to extend the fire shot, not the building shot. I should point out that for this particular shot, time-remapping will not look good at all. You either need to find a longer fire clip or create your own fire using a particle system.

You may also be able to loop the flames you now have in a precomp. It would depend on the nature of the motion in the layer.

Footage can also be looped from the Project Panel in its Interpret Footage dialog without creating a precomp. This will extend the duration of the available footage in timeline panels. If the footage is not actually seamlessly loopable, though, you are certainly better off creating a loop in a precomp.
