The forest fire that Narg The Foe Cleaver and Gem Jiggler started on accident during a battle with some Drow out side of Seven Pillars escelated. It spread all over the Untamed Expanse. At the same time Glim and Jago were opening a portal to a different plane, trying to find a way to get Jago into a new body, as he was dead and just a spirit. The Fire interacted with the open portal and altered it, opening a portal to the Fire Elemental Plane. Fire Elementals started pouring out into the unsuspecting country side. The town of Haley was one of the first attacked by the Fire elementals. But by the time the planar creatures arrived the people of Haley had evacuated onto ships, forming the Ember Float.
