Scorched? Blistered? Immolated?

im•mo•late ĭm′ə-lāt
transitive verb
To kill (an animal, for instance) as a religious sacrifice.
To kill, especially by fire.
To kill as a sacrificial victim; offer in sacrifice; make a sacrifice of.
Immolate sounds right for Holy Fire or Hell Fire.

Interestingly, a common response to seeing the Unicorn charging at you is to exclaim "Holy Moly". This is generally follow by a cloud of "Holy Smokes"!
