Gameplay follows Firefighter Dean McGregor as he fights fires and searches for survivors in blazes which are breaking out in locations across the city. A number of firefighting equipment can be used such as hoses to extinguish fires and an axe to hack away at obstructions which block the route you chose to take.

Events are covered as they unfold by television news reporter Emilie Arvin, who reports from the scene of each emergency, relaying the events as they break and also providing clues to the plot which leads to the cause of the fires which are sprouting up in locations ranging from tower blocks to a luxury cruiser.
