That effect is actually much easier than you think...

Shoot the hand on blue screen, although I suspect that this is a still that has been rotoscoped. Apply the fire filter, then inside the fire filter there is a setting to apply to edges only.....you then have to specify the track to use for the edges...guess what, that hand is your track to be used for edges. Really, it is that easy to do this effect.

It's not a hand that has been rotoscoped - it's me shooting my own hand holding it up in front of a blue sky so I could key it... very high production values I know...:)

What Mark wrote is right on. It's also possible to choose not to display the Map layer (Hand) in the fire layer (show just the flames in that layer) and then put the unaffected hand on a layer below - this gives you a little more flexibility for compositing the flames with the hand - for example using Hard Light Apply mode, tweaking brightness and opacity, etc.
