Talking to the red mage in the town of Zin reveals the following extra infomation in the build up to the event.

 The Red Mage says, 'The Church of Shadowfax is aware of recent reports of fire plane creatures
 appearing all over the Material Plane, and we are in process of gathering information
 in order to assess the situation.'

June 11

 The Red Mage says, 'The investigation into the widespread fire plane incursions continues.  
If you wish to help, bring me the remains of these so-called mephits 
that you might happen across and destroy.'

This is a repeatable quest where players are required to find mephits, kill them and bring the resulting ash back to the red mage for analysing.

Subject: Fire Plane Invasion!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The fire elementals found widespread across the mainland are now attacking
on sight.  You will need to take precautions when encoutering them.
Since fire plane creatures continue to encroach upon this world, we can
assume that what is taking place is no less than a prelude to a full scale
invasion.  The Church of Shadowfax is actively searching for a reasonable
means of stopping the elementals at their source.  We should have a
solution very soon.
In the mean time, the Red Mage continues to collect mephit leavings for use
in this research.  You can help by bringing him some.
(The fire invasion counterattack will begin on Friday, June 21st at 7pm. 
That is 10pm system time.  After the event, the invasion areas will remain
open over the weekend so that everyone has a chance to play through them.)

Mephits

Mephits are small imp like creatures from off plane, they are rarely seen on the material plane unless summoned and are usually non-aggro. As part of the summer solstice event fire, lava and smoke mephits started appearing and repoping at random locations across the mud, how and why they got there remains to be deterimined.

Mephit ash

Once a mephit is located and destroyed it will leave behind its ash. This item has multiple uses as well as been able to be given to the Red mage to aid his research in exchange for gold and xp quest reward, it can also be used to brew potions or make bombs. Some entrepreneurial players have even been seen trying to sell ash on auction usually for a starting price of about 500 gold.

Item: 'ash mephit leavings charred pile'  
Weight: 1  Size: 1'0"  Level: 90
Object is: 
Type: SPELLCOMP   Composition: FIRE
Estimated cost: 11182  
This item is in fairly good condition.

Note the mephit ash does not last forever it's condition will degenerate over time, it is therefore advisable to use it as soon as possible before it disappears.
