This ability allows the possessor to have incredible resistance to heat and flames with varying degrees of potency. Pyrokinetics commonly have this ability as a side effect of their pyrokinesis, although someone with this ability may not necessarily have Pyrokinesis, just as not all Pyrokinetics may not have Pyrokinetic Resistance as well.

A person possessing Pyrokinetic Resistance may be immune to all degrees of heat and flame.
Meredith has this ability as a side effect of her naturally possessed Pyrokinetic abilities, she is immune to the effects of her own flames and the indirect consequences of her flames; its heat, smoke, oxygen deprivation. It is not known if she is still susceptible to the flames that occur from other sources.
Flint has this ability as a side effect of her naturally possessed Pyrokinetic abilities, he has been shown to be immune to the effects of his own flames, which burn at a higher temperature than the flames of his sister Meredith. He has also stated that he cannot be burned, though this has never been proven if his claim is true it will suggest a higher level of Pyrokinetic Resistance on his part, perhaps because of the increased temperature of the flames he increases as opposed to other Pyrokinetics.
