Ring of fire[1]

"But then, through the darkness, fire erupted: crimson and gold, a ring of fire that surrounded the rock so that the Inferi holding Harry so tightly stumbled and faltered; they did not dare pass through the flames to get to the water. Dumbledore was on his feet again, pale as any of the surrounding Inferi, but taller than any, too, the fire dancing in his eyes; his wand was raised like a torch and from its tip emanated the flames, like a vast lasso, encircling them all with warmth."

There existed a spell that conjured a ring of fire, an infinite lasso made purely of flame[1]. This ring of fire could then be used for a number of purposes, from mundane illumination to the much more uncommon warding off of Inferi[1].

Professor Albus Dumbledore used this spell to ward off the Inferi in the Horcrux cave, as Harry Potter had forgotten that Inferi feared fire and light[1].
