In " A Quiet Place", Lee lights a fire in the evening. At one point, the camera pans around him to show a ring of fire lit up.

Does this imply there are other survivors around his farm?

My interpretation of this is that "yes" this implies other survivors in the valley that the farm is in.

We see Lee and Marcus come across a couple near their home, the woman who has recently been killed and the man who gives up and starts yelling.

The fire lighting may have become a tradition, a way of seeing that you are not the only people, but it also has practical value as a way of attracting attention should some sort of rescue ever come by.

    It strikes me as one of the relatively few implausible parts of the story - fire is quite noisy when it is lit and fueled by paper, wood or coal. They appear to have a supply of fire-lighting fluid in plastic bottles, but for everyone to have such a supply of fuel, and to use this every evening seems unlikely. – iandotkelly Apr 13 '18 at 20:00

    I don't think the film is meant to be tested against plausibility. In a plausible scenario you wouldn't rig strings of lights and a way to make them turn red if/when there's a creature around; you'd rig up some loudspeakers and use them to corral the creatures wherever you want them to go. Nor would you choose a rickety old farmhouse with huge, wide-open doors (and windows) everywhere as a good place to make a stand against predatory creatures. – aroth Apr 21 '18 at 2:49
