- "Some insolent Triads stole my beautiful car last night, wrecked it and left it burning! Some of my most precious donkey memorabilia was in the trunk! Real collectibles that are irreplaceable, my friend! I've hidden a throbbing weapon in the edge of Chinatown. Take it and teach and these Triad vandals to fear El Burro's well-endowed wrath! ARRIBA!"
- ― El Burro
Claude answers a payphone in Hepburn Heights. El Burro tells Claude that the Triads had stolen a car of Burro's with some of his memorabilia. They then wrecked and burned the car, so El Burro instructs Claude to avenge his Diablo Stallion by killing 25 Triads with a flamethrower. Claude then heads for Chinatown, where El Burro has placed a flamethrower. Claude sets fire to twenty-five Triads and completes the task.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to Chinatown and pick up the flamethrower
- Burn 25 Triads
The reward for completing the mission is $10,000. The player can get a $6,000 bonus by taking out the Triad group at the basketball courts in Little China Park. The mission Big'n'Veiny is unlocked. Also, after completion of the mission, the Triads will become violent towards Claude, even if the player has not completed the mission The Pick-Up from Toni Cipriani.
- The name "Trial by Fire" may be a reference to "Trial by Ordeal" by which the guilt or innocence of the accused is determined by subjecting them to a painful task.
- This mission originally was given by Darkel in which you would kill 50 civilians in a set time limit.
