It would depend on how it's described in the move to achieve the state.. You can't simply say that fire is now liquid, but need to describe it so I'll give two examples of how I would go about describing it in a move.What does liquid fire look like to you? Can you articulate what it would mean if earth could absorb liquids? How would those work?
Fire in a liquid state: "Seeing his opponent flee underground into network of attached tunnels forming a vast and intricate maze. Moving to the nearest entrance Hei will make the necessary handseals as he blends Yin into his chakra. Then upon completion Hei will release a massive flow of fire from his mouth altered by Yin. These flames taking on the properties of a liquid state allowing them to flow through the passageways of the underground maze as they take the path of least resistance as the weight of the flames, much like water, will lift and carry debris as it burns them. These flames will continue to spread heating the halls as they fill them. Ultimately the liquid flames will completely fill the tunnels in attempts to flood the opponent out."
In this example the nature of the fire is much like water, it will flow and have a density of water and thus have a weight behind it allowing for gravity to have an affect on it so it can flow and fill the tunnels as well as push away debris.
Absorbing Earth state: "As a massive wave of water continues to rush toward the city. Hei will make a series of handseals focusing Yin into his chakra as he rises a large wall. The earth wall will be pores' and sponge like not only serving the block the blunt of the wave but also absorb the water into itself as it expands, being hydrophilic in nature the water will pour and fill into the earthen walls pores instead of flowing to the sides. This will preventing any of the water from reaching the city"
In this example the earth acts hydrophilic like a sponge, allowing water to pour into itself and expand to withhold the extra volume.
