Flames in the pet trade market are a cross between a dodoma and a normal. The end result is a cleanier snake that won't 'fleck' out (the orange color scales will start to darken and dull as the snake ages in Kenyans) as the snake ages. There is nothing line bred about it, the dodoma genetics have proven out time and time again. Anyone who has worked with dodomas should agree that dodoma blood is a must if you are going to breed kenyans.

While the Nuclear line (super extreme orange/red) is definitely a line bred trait, there is more too the line than that. Nuclears first off, tend to be reduced patterned, which is associated with the Dodoma line. I do not know if Roy Stockwell bred dodomas into the line years and years ago, but we do see some strange things coming from nuclears being cross bred into other kenyan morphs. Jeff Holloway has possibly the best example with that crazy anery that is mostly white with just a few black spots. It has nuclear blood.

If you follow the above link there is a picture of a 5-6 year old adult normal female, I think she looks like a standard adult female, her orange scales have dulled and some have turned black/brown like her saddles. Whereas the 5-6 year old 100% dodoma does not have have any flecking, his color is the same as when I first purchased him from the Turners. The babies that he produces are flames. They will not fleck out as they get older and will typically have reduced patterns.

Scott and Jeff have a lot of experience with these two lines and could probably better clarify and possibly expand on my thoughts.
