The Fire Brigade (also known as Fire!) is 1926 American silent drama film directed by William Nigh. The film stars May McAvoy and Charles Ray. The Fire Brigade originally contained sequences shot in two-color Technicolor. A print of the film is preserved in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/United Artists archives.
The producers of the film contributed 25 per cent of the film's receipts toward a college for the instruction of fire-fighting officers.
Terry O'Neil (Charles Ray) is the youngest of a group of Irish-American firefighting brothers. He courts Helen Corwin (May McAvoy), the daughter of a politician whose crooked building contracts resulted in devastating blazes.
