The appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding beings that suddenly appeared by mutation, triggered the unprecedented situation that destroyed half of the whole world with fire. 30 years has passed since then. A group of offensive members calling themselves "Mad Burnish" start destroying the world again. The story revolves around the intense battles between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team "Burning Rescue," and Lio Fotia, the leader of "Mad Burnish."
