Kodansha Comics describes that manga's story:
Terror has paralyzed the clockwork metropolis of Tokyo! Possessed by demons, people have begun to burst into flame, leading to the establishment of a special firefighting team: the Fire Force, ready to roll on a moment's notice to fight spontaneous combustion anywhere it might break out. The team is about to get a very unique addition: Shinra, a boy who possesses the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous "devil's footprints" (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can the Fire Force discover the source of this strange phenomenon and put a stop to it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?
Ohkubo launched the series in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2015. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in North America, and the seventh volume shipped on December 5. The eighth volume will ship on February 13.
