The Hebrew word מתלקחת is not "from" the Greek φλογίζω (of which phlogiston), which appears to be related to the English flag and flock, and to the German Flug, 'flight'.

Exodus 9:24
ו אש מתלקחת ב תוך (MT)
τὸ πῦρ φλογίζον ἐν χαλάζῃ (LXX)

χαλάζῃ - שלג/תלג

שֶלֶג seems to me to be a variant of שֶלֶךְ $ELEK, that which is being thrown מוּשלך down from the sky.

Psalm 68:14
When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow (תשלג) in Salmon.

The word SALMON ( צלמון ) appear in Judges 9:48 rendered in Greek as Ερμων (Hermon)
and this is cognate with Ὄλυμπος ( Olympus), ὅρος ὄλυμον/הר־צלמון.

Scholars can't seem to find the name Olympus in Linear B but the name is cognate of Hermes written e-ma-ha

e-ma-ha > e-ma-pas > el-ma-pas

Deuteronomy 4:48 - Mount Sion, that is Er-Hermon

We have already remarked on the affinity of שִׂיאֹן and צִיוֹן, the two lofty נִשָּׂאִים places. See Isaiah 2:12-14
כִּי יוֹם לַיהוה צְבָאוֹת עַל כָּל גֵּאֶה וָרָם וְעַל כָּל נִשָּׂא וְשָׁפֵל. וְעַל כָּל אַרְזֵי הַלְּבָנוֹן הָרָמִים וְהַנִּשָּׂאִים וְעַל כָּל אַלּוֹנֵי הַבָּשָׁן. וְעַל כָּל הֶהָרִים הָרָמִים וְעַל כָּל הַגְּבָעוֹת הַנִּשָּׂאוֹת
Also mount סִינָי resembling a שן or a סנסן. Recall also the צִיּוּן, 'marker', of Ezekiel 39:15.

חֶרְמוֹן is either from the root חרם, 'bent', as in Lev. 21:18, or it is the amalgamation of הר-רם-הנוֹ

The letter ס (sāmek) often transliterate into PS(Ψ) e.g. ψαλῶ = סלה

סינ - ψάμμον "Sand"?
סינ - son of Canaan (Genesis 10:17)
Ποσειδῶν ?

חרם
- Ιέρωμα "consecrated object"
- ἑρμαῖ "Heap of stones, boundary marker"
- Ιερός "Holy, Sacred"

ציון
- κίων "Pillar, Gravestone, any column bearing inscription, natural objects e.g. Mount Atlas
- θῖν, θίς, θινῶν "Heap", sandy deserts of Libya, sand or mud at the bottom of the sea,

Psalm 105:41 - dry places (ציות) like a river.
Isaiah 25:5 - heat in a dry place (בציון שאון)
Isaiah 53:2 - dry ground ( ארץ ציה / γῇ διψώσῃ )

Isaiah 32:2
והיה־איש כמחבא־רוח וסתר זרם כפלגי־מים בציון כצל סלע־כבד בארץ עיפה

ב ארץ עיפה : ἐν γῇ διψώσῃ
עיפה = ἐκψύχω
