"Burnish" - a sudden mutation responsible for a vast number of cases of human combustion across the globe, which brings fear and anger to humanity in equal measure. In the wake of attempts to segregate the populace and maintain order, a radical group is born: the Mad Burnish, who seek to escape their oppression and impose themselves upon the world in an unprecedented explosion of terrorist activity. Thirty years on from the Great World Blaze which resulted from these atrocities, it's left to an anti-Burnish firefighting group known as Burning Rescue to maintain peace and order. With Galo Thymos at its forefront, can his burning passion for justice extinguish the nefarious deeds of Mad Burnish leader Lio Fotia? Either way, the resulting clash will prove the catalyst for sparks which ignite unexpected truths at the heart of a world whose very survival hangs in the balance.
