Storyline

Mulder is approached by a former love interest, Scotland Yard Inspector Phoebe Green, who needs help on a case. To date, three British politicians have spontaneously combusted, burning to a crisp. There has been no trace of accelerant being used and little to connect the three deaths. Green is in the U.S. providing security to Sir Michael Marsden and his family and wants to make sure nothing happens to him while he is visiting. Mulder tells Scully that he wants to take care of this himself - somewhat to her annoyance - but she eventually finds crucial evidence that leads the to the killer. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Phoebe Green states that a "minister of parliament" was killed. There is no such title. Individuals elected to parliament are "members of parliament", usually abbreviates as "MPs". Members of parliament and other individuals who form the government/cabinet and have a department portfolio are called "ministers" (i.e. the prime minister, education minister, justice minister, finance minister, etc.). They are appropriately called "government ministers". See more »

Highly Flammable
21 September 2006 | by thebigeasy555See all my reviews

The episode Fire is a worthwhile episode which is worth watching mainly for two reasons.The villain Cecil L'Ivley and Mulders old flame Phoebe Green.The inclusion of both these characters is the making of this episode.Cecil L'Ivley is a great villain and his ability to conjure up fire for his own wicked needs is superb.The scene in the bar where the woman asks him for a light is fantastic.Trust me you gotta see it!Its interesting to see apparent jealousy from Scully as Phoebe attempts to re-ignite her past with Mulder.A possible love triangle you never seen coming!A skeleton in Mulder's cupboard indeed.It was also interesting to see Mulders fear of fire
