You, unless you can come up with a better description of this accident. If you were already in the process of pulling out and the front end of your car was already in the street, then it's the other drivers responsibility to stop and allow you to fully pull onto the road, so it would not necessarily be your fault. Now, if you pulled right in front of the car as they were about to pass you, then it would be your fault since you pulled a maneuver on the road to which you caused someone else to crash. So as the first answer says, it's depends on the circumstances.

Who is at fault when you back into a car that is illegally parked?

Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...

Who is at fault if someone backed into a car parked in a fire lane when there was ample room to avoid the collision?

In any jurisdiction in the US, you are at fault because you shouldn't have been parked there. She would have had even more room if you weren't parked illegally. No. Removing the "fire lane" sign would not have avoided the collision! You are not at fault for a collision just because you were parked in an illegal place when someone hit your car. That is why they have mirrors, windows and brakes on cars: so the other driver can see parked cars (or wandering children) and stop to avoid recklessly crashing into them. A person who could have avoided a collision by exercising ordinary care in stopping sooner, but failed to do so, is responsible for the entire damage, regardless of what was hit or how it got there.
