An engine company is on fire when an arsonist attempts to recreate the Great Chicago Fire and an inspector (Robert DeNiro) is giving the men a hotfoot to solve this thing (Kurt Russell as a seasoned smokeeater; William Baldwin as his rookie kid brother). Directed by Ron Howard ("Ransom"). Written by Gregory Widen ("Highlander"), himself a firefighter for a time.
The Princess got chatting to Kurt at the royal premiere of his film Backdraft in London in 1991 (pictured) and apparently confided in him that she was struggling with constant attention from the paparazzi

Backdraft This broke my heart but it was such a moving and dramatic realistic movie I had to watch it. Especially since I nearly died in a fire, lost consciousness and quit breathing. It is difficult for me to watch but necessary.
