Anson Durst's weapon Recompense has the Eruption of Ash ability. The same ability is on pThagrosh's weapon Rapture and the Void Spirit's Talons. On the Legion and Skorne models, it is written with a Fire Type Damage symbol :DmgType-Fire:. Anson's version is written with a Continuous Fire symbol :Cont-Fire:. Is this a misprint, or does the Menoth version of this ability also cause continuous fire?

The text of the ability states "fire damage roll" and makes no mention of suffering the Fire continuous effect. Looks like a typo/misprint of the Fire damage icon.

Agreed. It follows the same format as other texts referring to fire (type) damage rolls that do not cause continuous effects. The icon must be wrong. In every instance I remember where an effect causes continuous fire (except on weapon stat bars), it is specifically spelled out in addition to using the icon.

Sometimes some models are having same named effect but their detail are slightly diffrent. But it seems that it is a typo....

It is normal fire icons in the book. The card is incorrect. The ability will be changed in the next errata to reflect the other Eruption of Ash abilities.
