Best answer

Blaziken
The only Non-Pre evolution Fire Fighting type was Blaziken, Infernape and Emboar.
But however, Blaziken will be the best seems that it got superb movepool, great ability of Speed boost and could paired with Sword dance. And it also received a Mega Evolution in Generation 6 and makes it more stronger. Also, the other two’s stat, ability and movepool were all outclassed by Blaziken, which makes Blaziken a real Champ.
Here’s what smogon says:

Blaziken can potentially be a dangerous sweeper with the combination of Speed Boost and Swords Dance. This is due to its great output with a combination of strong STAB moves, Life Orb, and a solid base 120 Attack stat. Additionally, Blaziken pairs very well with other physical attackers, such as Primal Groudon and Mega Salamence, since they can break down each other's checks and prepare for a sweep. It can even use Baton Pass to switch out and pass its boosts to its teammates.

Hope it helps!

I prefer Blaziken above all the others because of it's ability Speed Boost, has a Mega Evolution (thus greater stats) and a nice movepool, having access to many neat moves.
Blaziken:
Pros
-It’s ability Speed Boost is nice when Swords Dance is used, meaning more Atk & Spe.
-Access to great movepool of High Jump Kick, Brave Bird, and Flare Blitz
-Could be a strong physical sweeper or a special sweeper due to it's mixed stats of Atk and Sp. Atk, although Atk is a little higher.
-Gains a Mega Evolution while the other two (Infernape and Emboar) don't have one, which means that Blaziken gets a stat boost.
Cons
-Defensive stat isn’t too good, but it becomes more decent after Mega Evolution.

This is why Blaziken is probably better, because Infernape's mediocre speed and other things, aren't as good as Blaziken's stats, while Emboar has pros, all of them are also to Infernape and Blaziken, while not very good defensive stats. As mentioned above, Blaziken has also Baton Pass to other teammates and they get awesome stat boosts, with an added bonus if they're mostly a physical attacker.

Due to all these circumstances, Blaziken is probably the best answer.

Let's look at there Stats

Blaziken
HP:80
Atk:120
Def:70
SpA:110
SpD:70
SpE:80
Total:530

Blaziken has a very wide movepool being able to learn brave bird and swords Dance making it a very good sweeper However,it's speed stat isn't to fast so it might get outsped this is covered by it's hidden ability Speed Boost.It also has a Mega evolution making it very strong.

Infernape
HP:76
Atk:104
Def:71
SpA:104
SpE:108
Total:534
Infernape is very similar to Blaziken has a good movepool,sweeping capabilities and it have 1 more defence and special Defence and less HP but it's much faster than Blaziken meaning it could be a better sweeper.its Hidden ability is Iron Fist which is good because it gets all the elemental punches except Ice punch.

Emboar

HP:110
Atk:123
Def:65
SpA:100
SpD:65
SpE:65

Emboar is the worst fire starter it movepool is bad,it's slow with low defence However it's HP and Attack stat are really Good.Its Hidden ability Reckless is an OK ability it gets three recoil moves being Flare Blitz,Head Smash and Wild Charge.

Overall
My favourite is Infernape but the best is without a doubt Blaziken
