Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems.
The problem you're having is often due to the software in the Kindle locking up and it needing to be rebooted. To do this, simply press and hold the power button on the Kindle for 40 FULL seconds, then release and wait a full minute for it to reboot (do no press anything else within that minute). If this does not cure the issue, try that reset up to THREE TIMES and wait the full minute to see if it reboots.
If those steps do not work, it would be worth purchasing another charge cable, or at least trying another mini USB charge cable to see if that's the cause of the issue.
Generally it is a software issue which can be fixed by the reboot, but beyond that you're looking at either the charge cable, or possible the internal battery. A new charge cable can be purchased at the link below:
Beyond the reboot and cable the issue would be internal to the Fire and require a new battery, or re-soldering of the charge port contacts. In this case you can use the link below to locate a Kindle repair service:
