Here is my best explanation:

'creatures reminding us that' is the definition.

'fireflies' can be an answer for 'creatures' (firefly is a kind of creature). I am not sure about the rest of the definition.

'conflagration moves fast' is the subsidiary indication.

'conflagration' becomes 'fire' (I've seen this before).

'moves fast' becomes 'flies' (flying is a kind of moving. I am not sure about the 'fast' bit.**).

'fire'+'flies'='fireflies'
