I Imagine its a combination of some nice burning shader work on the cape material itself. 

Then combined with some pyro/sparks. 

- So I would approach it in this order; (Simplified) 

- Create your noise/mask attribute for burning on the geometry you wish to be burning, pump this attribute into the shader and then do some magic to create the burning look. 

- Use this same attribute to emit both your pyro and sparks. Or create your pyro which drives your sparks. 

- Iterate until it all works together nicely. 

Hope this helps :)

Check breakdown of this element without comp.
And don't waste time trying recreate this, repeat just similar and simpler, this fx was done by high level team with dozents iterations not newbie.

As people above have mentioned the tasks involved in making a shot like this to work, is a team work , fx, lighting, comp and grading to get something like this done , 

but do not get discouraged, you can always try making something similar if time and resources are a constraint, so quickly put together a hip file , so you can play around with and modify to your needs ,

and there is a post related this topic in the effects forum, lava flow, so you can refer to that as well ,
