The origins of the Fire-Monsters are unknown. They have been constantly kept in check by the Tibetan lamas known as the Fire-Men for centuries, and have also been referred to as the "Monsters of the Hill". Presumably, the creatures are located in some remote region of Tibet, however their place of origin is also a mystery.

In modern times, Culfa, a member of the Fire-Men sought to use a Fire-Monster as part of a series of crimes he hoped to pin on the android Human Torch. Aware that there was a Fire-Monster on the loose in New York City, but not knowing who was responsible, the Fire-Men would seek the aid of the Torch to help. Ultimately, the Torch would slay the Fire-Monster who's destruction he was being blamed for, and captured Culfa, turning him over to the authorities.

If there are anymore Fire-Monsters alive in the world today remains unrevealed.
