In a Thursday post, Tokyo expatriate blogger Danny Choo revealed the title of the anime that his new Mirai Fusion studio has been planning: Chinka (鎮火 or literally, "put out a fire"). A unit called Hibuse worked with Mirai Fusion on the original story. Choo had revealed the existence of Mirai Fusion and the anime project in a post earlier this month. At the time, he also previewed an image of "Chinka-chan."
Choo describes the story of the anime as the following:

In the rural town of Kiyotaki, situated in a beautiful mountain valley, the town folks are talking about the legendary arsonist, Akaneko [赤猫].
The police have completely given up on Akaneko, who has slipped through their fingers every time.
The town's only hope is its one and only firefighting team - the Mizuneko [水猫] Fire Brigade. But because of their destructive fire fighting ways, they too are feared by the town folk. Almost every night, Akaneko and the Mizuneko Fire Brigade fight fiercely, taking down many of the town's buildings in the process. The Mizuneko Fire Brigade have depleted most of the town's financial resources so the town ends up on the verge of bankruptcy. The town was in a critical state when Chinka, a girl with a superhuman ability to smell out fires appears. With her powers, the Mizuneko Fire Brigade close in on the true identity of Akaneko...
