An incendiary cast lights up this thriller from Ron Howard about a band of Chicago firefighters on the trail of a serial arsonist. The action centres round Stephen "Bull" McCaffrey (Russell) and brother Brian (Baldwin); two firefighters of Company 17 at the Chicago Fire Dept. Their volatile relationship is put to the test when they find themselves working in cohorts, trying to solve the mystery of the tactical blazes that are being started around the city. Pyrotechnics and special effects abound, this rip-roaring drama earned itself three Academy Award nominations in 1992
