The ( fairly rudimentary ) vocab. in the JACT "Reading Greek" gives:

PUR, TO     fire
PURA, TA   fire signal
PURA  hH   funeral pyre


If you go back to Perseus and consult Smyth under the rubric of irregular 
substantives
( s. 254 and 285.25 ) you will find it listed as PUR, PUROS, PURI  etc. ( 
2nd. decl )
OTOH, the JACT book classifies it as 3b, i.e the endings of PRAGMA  -- the 
results are the same, of course:  PUR, PUROS, PURI etc.
