The famous one is Hamamatsu UVTron series used by most fire fighting robots. However, Cytron doesn't sell any of Hamamatsu flame detector at the moment.

A low-cost solution would be using IR sensor. I think the teams who participated MURoC fire fighting game organized by UniMAP, Perlis this year is using this method. It should be no problem for you to find similar solution in the web.

You can try either heat sensor or light sensor.
