The Fireproof Natives lived in the jungle, somewhere in Africa. They ingested a potion, giving them immunity to flame. Sub-Mariner arranged for the natives to attack the Human Torch after Namor had feigned the production of a movie starring the Fantastic Four. Namor sent the Human Torch to Africa to film scenes with a local tribe.
The natives were not frightened by the Human Torch. They captured him in and placed him in a bamboo cage. Torch later regained his strength, burned through the cage, and flew away. The natives tried to seize him again, but the Torch continued flying into a nearby volcano, where he triggered an eruption. The eruption caused the natives to evacuate their village, and the resulting lava destroyed all of their potion.
