What's the fire made from?

You've obviously tried just turning up the ring's specular colour and reflectivity?

make sure you have raytracing on in the render globals

If you are using Maya's built in Fire effect you have to change it so it will show up in the reflection

Select the particles that made up the fire, and open you attribute editor. Make sure you are on the ParticleShape tab and go down to the Render stats folder and click on Visible in Reflections
