Could a creature evolve to breathe fire

Sure.  Lots of bored scientists and/or speculative fiction writers have described various ways to make it work.

But not all breath weapons are fire.  We have  a dragon and it has  a deadly weapon in its mouth.  The Komodo dragon's bite kills with a deadly bioweapon variously composed of teeth, toxins, and pathogens that develop with super-speed; and like mythical dragons, they're immune to their own weapons.  They are more than capable of killing a human; they can kill a water buffalo.  Really not far off the mark as monsters go.  Dragon = truth in advertising.
