While investigating the cause of a series of lethal fires in London, U.S. insurance man Quentin Barnaby (Chad Everett) falls in love with beautiful journalist Toby Collins (Anjanette Comer). Working alongside and pooling information with Toby and her photographer, Jim Maxwell (Keith Barron), Barnaby hopes they share a common goal, that of "firechasing" the identity of the arsonist responsible.


Critical reception

TV Guide called it "so-so entertainment";[3] while the Radio Times wrote, "director Sidney Hayers keeps up the pace as unlikely insurance investigator Everett hunts an arsonist throughout a London peopled with well-known British character actors." [4]
