It is stated to be similar to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill in style.
Two people from seemingly opposing sides clash head-on. Lio, leader of the Mad Burnish and Galo, a member of Burning Rescue.
The Burnish are a group of humans with the ability to create bend fire to their will. Burnish first appeared 30 years ago, when an alternate dimension meshed with the one earth resides in. Sentient beings from the alternate dimension called Promare become trapped on Earth. Promare has a desire to burn, that is how they thrive. They latch onto humans for hosts, and obey their host's will, creating those known as Burnish.
Due to the heightened Promare activity, much of it living in the magma beneath the surface, the world is going to be consumed in lava in the foreseeable future. Only a select few know about their impending doom and prepare ways to prevent total annihilation. Their methods are dubious.
Burnish are loathed by society, mostly out of fear and negligence that Burnish are also human. The Mad Burnish also have questionable methods of operation, but never aim to take lives of the innocent. They only wish to leave a message.
Lio shows Galo who the real enemy is. Galo, once believing in the same things as society, his morals of protecting everyone remains unshaken. He shows Lio a better way to fight without harming those in his path. They forge an unlikely bond with similar goals. Galo's will combined with Lio's creates a new flame that is used to save the world.
