An alien life form lands on Earth traveling from the Sun. It starts a gigantic forest fire in 1965. The girl who goes to put the fire out gets possessed, yes I said possessed, by the fire and starts breathing it all over, torching what is left of the forest. She then drops dead, fried from the inside out. Her boyfriend searches for the next 32 years to find out what this life form is and how to stop it. After a bizarre fire in present day, local fire fighters try to contain the last of the blaze when one of them is engulfed by the flames. His partner Jake (Nicholas Brendan), witnesses the event and thinks he is losing his mind. Later that night he meets Cooke, the guy who has been researching the fires for the last 3+ decades and is told that he knows what Jake saw, and that it is real. Together they go out to stop the Fire Serpent and along the way run into a government cover up that they also have to take down.
