What has no shadow?

Why doesn’t fire have a shadow?

Can a shadow have a shadow?
No. A shadow is cast because the direct rays of light from a source are blocked by an intervening object. If you managed to cast a shadow, while invisible, it would mean that you had absorbed or reflected the light rays striking you. And if you’re doing that, then you’re not invisible.
