I drink from my tail.
I breathe fire.
I hate water.
Only fire can bring me back to life.

Who am I?

Hint:

This is my first time here, I hope that you guys enjoy my very first riddle, and I don't feel like an old oil-lamp around these many bright-minded people.

Are you a...

Lamp with a wick, like a kerosene lamp?

I drink from my tail.

One end of the wick is the tail

I breathe Fire.

The fire burns on the other end

I hate water.

Obviously, water can put it out

Only fire can bring me back to life.

You have to start up the fire on the wick to light it up

  • $\begingroup$ Actually, water won't put this out, but rather spread it in a usually spectacular way, which might be considered a different reason it hates water. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 7, 2020 at 17:16
