What does Psalm 106:18 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 106:18

And a fire was kindled in their company
This seems to be the company of Korah, or however a part of it, the two hundred and fifty men that had censers, and so were of the Levitical race, as Korah was; this fire came from the Lord out of heaven.

The flame burned up the wicked;
the two hundred and fifty men with censers, ( Numbers 16:35 ) , this was an emblem of that fire which shall consume those that hurt the witnesses; or of that vengeance of eternal fire which wicked men will suffer for ever.
