You can say “他脾气很火爆(tā píqi hěn huǒbào)” he has a hot temper, or “他的生意做得很火爆(tā de shēngyi zuò de hěn huǒbào)” his business is very flourishing.

“并列(bìngliè)”refers to two things stand side by side. “并(bìng)”means one thing stands together with another and “列(liè)” means something to line up. So you can say “我和他并列第一(wǒ hé tā bìngliè dìyī)” he and I tied for first place in the examination.
