The film opens with Baltimore City Fire Department firefighter Jack Morrison saving a man's life in a burning warehouse in the Canton neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland. However, the grain being stored in the warehouse explodes, sending Jack tumbling several floors where he breaks his leg. The film follows the efforts of the other men in his unit led by BCFD Deputy Chief Mike Kennedy, his longtime mentor, to rescue him while Jack tries to reach a safe area of the burning structure. Interspersed with the current rescue efforts are a series of flashbacks showing how Jack joined the fire department, his meeting with the woman who would become his wife, his relationship with his children and the bond he formed with his fellow firefighters.
