Mike Sparks was born during the 17th century A.D. in Poland. He grew up on the streets and pick-pocketed with his brother known later on as Hotshot. He constantly bailed his brother out of jail for getting into trouble and throughout the centuries; grew further and further apart from him.
World War 2
By World War 2; Mike was captured by the Nazis and was sent to Auschwitz Concentration Camp, where he met his friend Schmuel. Schmuel unfortunately died while in Auschwitz via gas chamber; where Mike was when he saw his friend die from the gas.
He survived the gas chamber and before they could examine him for his power; Allied troops liberated him from the camp. Troops such as George Reynolds assisted in the liberation; however he was killed by a German machine gunner. For the next 20 years; Mike spent his time alone in America.
By the 1960s and 70s; Mike met his friend known to many as Mutant X. Mike and him had a few meetings; all times they assisted each other until the 1980s.

Hotshot won and destroyed ForestFire's bone claws; however later on, Stryker came to Mike with an offer he absolutely couldn't pass up.
By the 90s; Mike underwent a procedure that coated his entire skeletal structure in the virtually indestructible alloy known as Adamantium. He eventually escaped when he heard Stryker tell his men to kill him and he later managed to stay the night at a small farm that was destroyed by Zero when he went after Wolverine. He later sought the help of Fred Dukes and found him at the arena where John Wraith used to work. Dukes explained to him where Logan and Wraith went; to find Gambit.
He searched for Gambit in New Orleans; however found nothing; although he found his apartment and he discovered a map to 3 Mile Island. He arrived at the island and was attacked by Stryker who shot at both him and Wolverine; hitting both of them in the head with several Adamantium rounds. He lost his memory on account of this and eventually walked away with no memory of what happened or who he was; however retained only one name; ForestFire.
Mutant X & ForestFire
By the 2000s; Mike traveled throughout New York where he encountered Mutant X. Mutant X called him Mike; however because he had no knowledge of his birth name or Mutant X, he battled Mutant X until Mutant X explained who he was and where he came from.
