'fury' is the definition.
(ire is intense rage)

'firemans' is the wordplay.
'IRE' is hidden within the letters.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for ire that I've seen before include "Choler" , "resentment" , "Strong emotion" , "Hot temper" , "Fury" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
