  Voice of the Son of God Part 11: Fire and Brimstone, Marks of the beast and of the Father
The Greek word THEION translated 'brimstone' is exactly the same word THEION which means 'divine.' Sulphur was sacred to the deity among the ancient Greeks; and was used to fumigate, to purify, and to cleanse and consecrate to the deity; for this purpose they burned it in their incense.

 The Straight Dope Mailbag: The Straight Dope Mailbag: What's up with "fire and brimstone"? What's brimstone?
The origin of the term "fire and brimstone" is, of course, Biblical.

Fire and Brimstone explores lesbianism and Black motherhood as both separate and integrated issues impacting the main character’s role as a single parent, while opening dialogue on such issues as economics, same-sex domestic violence, and intra-racial castes systems among African-Americans.
These issues, mixed with a portrayal of a myriad of relationships – mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, fathers and daughters - embody a true meaning of fire and brimstone that has yet to be shared with the world.

On June 8, 1917, a fire broke out in the main shaft of a huge complex of copper mines 2,000 feet beneath Granite Mountain in Butte, Mont. The fire raged for three days, killing 164 of the 400 or so men at work that day.
If the horrifying account of the fire and the trapped men is the heart of this yarn, its soul is Punke's historical contextualization of the event.
There were over 400 men working in the mine, and as word spread about the fire, they scrambled through the labyrinthine tunnels attempting to find a way out or somehow to keep clear of the poisonous gases (mostly carbon monoxide).

 L. Ray Smith - The Lake of Fire - Part 1
The teaching comprising the largest number of adherents (Christian Fundamentalists) state that the lake of fire is indeed literal fire, but that the second death part is figurative or symbolic seeing that its victims never actually become literally dead or even unconscious, but rather they interpret this second death as separation from God.
They believe that when the victims are thrown into the lake of fire, they have already gone through the white throne judgment and have turned to God, are now righteous, have accepted Christ as their Lord, but they must die a second time anyway.
That is, the lake of fire is the cause of, or the agency which produces, the second death.
