Do you have a 1st generation Kindle Fire? Or is it recently purchased?

If 1st generation, press on the top right of the screen to bring up the ribbon menu. Choose More, then look for Device. Scroll down on the settings and you should see one for Enable Flash. Make sure it's checked.

UPDATE: Yep, that's 2nd generation. Flash is not supported in the 2nd generation. It is possible to get it via downloading a browser called Dolphin. I've linked to a video that discusses how to do this. It's for the Kindle Fire HD, but it should work for your 2nd generation Fire.

First, you better check which model of Kindle Fire you have. See the different models below. Only the Kindle Fire (1st Generation) has built-in Flash Player supported, if so you can find in the settings to enable Flash. All newer Kindle Fires don't have such setting:

Since you can't find the option, I believe you are having a Kindle Fire 2nd Generation or Kindle Fire HD. They don't officially support Adobe Flash, as all new Android 4.0 or later tablets won't support Flash (Adobe is going to abandon Flash indeed). But there's workaround that can make Flash work on the new Kindle Fires, see the detailed description here:

Hope that helps.
