Adding particles to a moving, complex shape

i am trying to "set fire" to a moving, white image. It is a complex shape with a transparent backgroud, and i want flames / smoke to be generated at the borders / outlines of the image. I cannot figure out how to do a motion path so that flames / smoke can " follow" the borders ("run around" the complex shape or be generated on top of this image), i always end up in having a splotch of particles centered on top of the image while it moves. Do you understand the issue, and how can i solve it? Thanks in advance!
Attached File shows what i mean - at the end. I want it to look like it "emerges from the depths of hell", with smoke and fire all around the logo, following the shape.
