Leslie Nielsen! Henry Fonda! Shelley Winters! An all star cast gets engulfed in fiery terror!
William Dudley (Leslie Nielsen, THE NAKED GUN) is a corrupt mayor who has allowed a chemical works to be built in the center of town. When a disgruntled employee gets fired, he decides to take his revenge by opening the valves to the storage vats and their pipes. It doesn't take long for this act of petty vandalism to start a fire that soon engulfs an entire metropolis! CITY ON FIRE is Canada’s finest precursor to BACKDRAFT, now newly restored from the original camera negative.
