Fire 🔥 symbol in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

Type the Fire 🔥  symbol or emoji into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook.  Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.

Fire 🔥  emoji has many names like Hot, Lit, Flame and Snapstreak

How Fire 🔥 looks in different fonts.

Here’s some examples of how Fire 🔥 looks in common Office fonts.

Fire 🔥 codes

These are the important code numbers or values you’ll need to enter the Fire or 🔥

Decimal:  128293  Hex:   1f525

Web: 🔥 or 🔥

(web codes aren’t used in Microsoft Office, we’ve included them for the sake of completeness.)

Word and Outlook

The Fire 🔥  sign does NOT have an inbuilt shortcut in Word.

Use the standard Word Alt + X symbol shortcut 1f525 then Alt + X

Once in a document you can copy it to AutoCorrect and make your own shortcut.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

Insert | Symbols | Symbol should work but doesn’t because, at present, Office for Windows doesn’t support the high-numbered Unicode symbols like emoji. Word’s Find can’t find all Unicode symbols and emoji


In Windows there are several shortcuts to enter the Fire 🔥  character into any program, but they use a numeric keypad, not the number row above the letters.

Alt + 128293  

Window 10 Emoji Panel

Use Win + . (period/fullstop) to open the Windows 10 Emoji Panel.  Search for  ‘Fire’

See Emoji Panel is part of Windows 10 that totally sucks

Windows Character Map

Like Office Insert Symbol the Windows Character Map accessory in all Windows releases does NOT support high-end Unicode characters like emoji.

MacOS and Office for Mac inserting characters

On a Mac, to enter the Fire 🔥 symbol:

  • Command + Control + Spacebar shortcut to open the Character Viewer.  
  • Search for “ Fire “ and the Viewer should find the symbol you need.

Despite the name Character Viewer, the Apple system tool will also insert characters into any program, including Office for Mac.
