Firefighter

The player extinguishing a fire in GTA San Andreas.

The Firefighter side mission is an optional vehicle mission that can be toggled on or off from within a Fire Truck in all GTA III era games. The mission requires the player to find and extinguish burning vehicles within a time limit. In Grand Theft Auto III, each level consists of one burning vehicle which must be extinguished. From Grand Theft Auto: Vice City onwards, the mission becomes more difficult as higher levels may consist of a burning vehicle that is still occupied and driving around frantically, or multiple burning vehicles and their occupants, all of which must be extinguished within the time limit. Even more problematic, once a burning vehicle containing passengers is extinguished, they exit the vehicle and run in all directions, still burning. The player must chase after the victims and extinguish them, while being careful not to kill any of them with the truck, as this results in mission failure. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the mission works a little different and if a victim dies only some seconds of the time will be taken rather than mission failure. Leaving the fire truck gives a time limit to return to one before the failure of the mission.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the side mission (now named Fire Fighter) has changed significantly: along with putting out vehicle fires, the player also has the added tasks of dealing with building fires and "non-violently" silencing protesters.

Completing the firefighter side-mission will either give the player a flamethrower at the safehouse or turn the protagonist fireproof. The fireproof bonus may be useful for some missions such as End of the Line or Light My Pyre.
