I have never had a problem with bristleworms hurting anything in the tank. I am not sure if any of them were of the "Fireworm" species, but I do know they are a beneficial hitchhiker. I also know that they tend to get larger (and more in number) as you feed the tank more and more. You can diminish their numbers by cutting back on feedings, as they will die off and eat the carcasses.
EDIT: Can you get a picture up? Feed the tank to make him come out.
