There are at least 9 passages where 'salamander' is used. It is the symbol of the firemen and the name of their firetruck.

pg. 36.."salamander quote"

In most literature both the hearth (fireplace) and the salamander represent 'fire'. In ancient texts the salamander could not be harmed by fire, and of course, the hearth symbolizes home and family. Off course, this is all ironic because he is harmed by fire and his home is anything but happy.
