Children's fantasy book

: For years, I have been trying to remember the name of a book I read as a child, in the mid-1980s. It is a novel, appropriate for 8-12 year olds, in a vaguely medieval/fantasy setting. The main character (I think) is a boy who goes into a forest (on a journey? a quest?) - he meets a girl there who is a firewitch, with really bright orange hair. Sorry for the vagueness, but I was about eight at the time, and haven't been able to find it since.

One more (possibly unhelpful) clue - it might have something about dragons in the title. At one time, I thought it might be "Dealing with Dragoins" - but that turns out to be the first in the Enchanted Forest series by Patricia C. Wrede, which I have just bought - it's a great series, but not what I'm looking for. This book is a similar length/reading level, but more serious, and definitely has a young orange-haired fire-witch as one of the characters.
