Absolutely. Flame is superheated gases, which rise because they're less dense than the air surrounding them. It's gravity pulling the cooler air down around them.
If you don't have gravity, flame burns in a perfect sphere. But it also burns out quickly, because the lack of convection means that new oxygen isn't being brought to the heat source.
NASA even did the experiment on the space shuttle in 1997.
