I have immunity to non magical fire. Nothing in the Azers description indicates that its ever-present flames are magical. Am I therefore immune to its fire damage?

    \$\begingroup\$ It's pretty rare in 5e for damage resistances to specify magical/non-magical resistance for anything that isn't Slashing, Piercing, or Bludgeoning. Can you specify what feature is giving you Immunity to Fire Damage that is specifically indicating non-magical fire only? \$\endgroup\$

Yes, you are protected

If a feature in 5e cares whether or not stuff is magical, there's a litmus test.

Since the Azer's magic flames don't meet any of the bullet points on that list they, like dragon fire or the attacks of a fire elemental, are just fluffed as magic and don't actually count as magic for rules mechanical purposes.
