Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
After George shows his spineless side at a birthday party for the son of the woman he's dating, Kramer rescues a bus-load of people from a gunman, inspiring George to make an attempt at redeeming himself. Meanwhile, Jerry looks for a creative way to deal with Elaine's co-worker, who caused him to receive a negative magazine review when she heckled him at a show. A pre-Swingers Jon Favreau makes an appearance as a clown at the birthday party. Originally airing May 5, 1994, "The Fire" was the 18th episode shot for the show's fifth season, despite being the 19th one shown.
