What does he’s got embers in the fire mean?

the whole saying is, “he has to think, he's got embers in the fire and to fit you in right now is too much. Let things settle down for couple weeks and test him again. Put him on your calendar to test him again, that way you can forget him and get on with your work until then. Dont make intentional encounters just to see him. Leave him alone for now.”
a guy said this to me kind of like an advice about this situation i’m in with this guy and i’ve never heard of embers in the fire and don’t know what that means, and how i should even test him
