Two firefighters of Engine 17 of the Chicago Fire Department are brothers. Lt. Stephen “Bull” McCaffrey, the elder, is experienced, while Brian has labored under his brother’s shadow his entire life. Brian returns to firefighting after a number of other careers falter, though Stephen has doubts that Brian is still fit to be a firefighter. In 1971, Brian witnessed the death of their firefighting father, Captain Dennis McCaffrey, while accompanying him on a call. The longest-serving of all the men at Engine 17, John “Axe” Adcox, served under the McCaffreys’ father, and was like an uncle to the boys when their father died. Adcox grows concerned about Stephen’s unorthodox methods and disregard for safety procedures, as does Stephen’s wife Helen, separating from Stephen to protect herself and their son Sean.

Inspector Donald “Shadow” Rimgale, a dedicated arson investigator and veteran firefighter, is called in because a number of recent explosive fires resemble those set by pyromaniac Ronald Bartel, who has been imprisoned for years. Brian is reassigned as his assistant after a falling out with Stephen. Rimgale manipulates Ronald’s obsession with fire to ensure his annual parole application is rejected. It is revealed during an investigation that Chicago City Council alderman Marty Swayzak, who has supported fire department budget cuts, was paid off by contractors to shut down firehouses so they could be converted into community centers, with the contractors receiving contracts for the construction. Brian also rekindles a relationship with Jennifer Vaitkus, an aide to Swayzak.
