Two Chicago firefighter brothers, who don't get along, have to work together while a dangerous arsonist is on the loose.
The photos of firefighters seen on the walls of the investigators office, are of the Los Angeles County fire fighters who were on scene during the filming of the fire scenes as a precautionary measure.
Firefighter Brian McCaffrey:
You had to do it, didn't you? Had to be the big Mick Man, taking on the fire bare-handed instead of protecting your probe?
Lt. Steven McCaffrey: I *had it* under control! He just wouldn't listen to me!
Firefighter Brian McCaffrey: He's a *candidate*! YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! You shouldn't have had him ...
When Brian is talking to the Alderman during the retirement party, his fork alternates between the plate and his mouth between shots.
