Brown excels at writing “you are there” nonfiction. Narrator Sala reads as though he’s telling the listener his story. Seldom is a non-firefighter able to hear about extricating a person crushed in a trailer truck or fighting a fire in a fireproof building with such precision and emotion. This is a very macho book, and Sala delivers the required machismo, especially when he tells of beating a mouse to death. The listener is present during each vignette--either cheering the hero on or wishing to discourage his sometimes senseless display of the “mastery of man.” ON FIRE is a perfect audiobook, a firefighters’ WORKING.
