Chicago firefighting brothers Stephen and Brian have been rivals since childhood. Brian, struggling to prove himself, transfers to the arson unit. There he aids Don in his investigation into a spate of fires involving oxygen-induced infernos called backdrafts. But when a conspiracy implicating a crooked politician and an arsonist leads Brian back to Stephen, he is forced to overcome his brotherly competitiveness in order to crack the case.
