The Fire Ghost is the primary antagonist of the Are You Afraid of the Dark? episode "The Tale of the Fire Ghost". He was proof that fire is alive and when it dies, its soul doesn't always die along with it. He disliked firefighters and anyone related to them. Waiting for the right moment to strike, he waited inside the firehouse. The Fire Ghost almost managed to burn a child trapped in a closet, but the child was saved by the ghost of a fireman. He was ultimately defeated when tricked into igniting himself and setting off the firehouse's sprinkler system.
