Firstly, the story is based on a fire disaster that occurred 250 years ago and the world was destroyed by the event. Therefore, the survivors go on to take refugees under Tokyo Empire and they form a special fire brigade called Fire Force. The fire force is formed by combining people of various powers. Now a third-generation kid, Shinra Kusakabe gets the power to ignite his feet and is called ‘Devil’s Footprint’. He goes on to join the special forces and joins Company 8 which deals with investigating other companies for corrupt activities.
The White Cloaks approach Shinra and Sho (Shinra’s brother) to enact a scheme in order to repeat the Great Disaster. Shinra learns various facts from his brother’s abduction to the fire that killed his mother. It was all because of a doomsday cult behind Infernal attacks.
