When a gas or fumes are ignited there are many ways to extinguish the flames. A increase in airspeed will cause the fumes to mix with more air diluting the fuel air mixture to the point that it goes out. At higher altitudes there is less air resistance and therefore less air to mix / dilute the fumes making it more difficult to extinguish.
Its like blowing out a match.....
Another way to extinguish the fire is to use a fire extinguisher. A fire extinguisher essentially covers the gas making it unable to make fumes to light. Its effectiveness "should" increase with altitude... I wonder if this is true in game however...???
