Fractal Noise, in combination with some of the distortion effects is frequently used.
Trapcode form has been used to create flames. I haven't done it personally though.
You can find a ton of different ways to do it, including tons of tutorials here.

[edan canning] "...i just got after effects cs4..."

...in which case, you've got a BOATLOAD of learnin' to do, Pardner!

If you skip it, you're going to become extremely frustrated when working in AE. This is the kind of application where you have to know the basics, or you're going to hose yourself, and that's no joke.

Start here:

...and read EVERYTHING. There are valuable links near the end.
