What does the suffix -ıyorum mean?

Specifically I'm looking for the meaning of 'yanıyorum'

I think 'yaniyorum' means I'm burning, because the -iyorum suffix means "I'm .....ing"

    It marks something you're currently doing, yes. Not to be confused with the suffix "im" which, depending on when the root is a verb or an adjective, means "I generally do" or "I am [adjective]".
