Jake Crawford (Jordan Calloway) and Eve Edwards (Jules Latimer) are fan favorites on Fire Country. As childhood friends they always seem to be joined at the hip, and their familiarity with each other makes for some fun hi-jinx in the midst of more grim storylines.
Given how close they are, and the fact that they grew up together, there’s a theory held by some fans that Jake and Eve are actually siblings. It makes sense when you factor in their similarities and their age, but is there evidence to support this theory? Let’s investigate.
Are Jake and Eve siblings on Fire Country?
Jake and Eve grew up in Edgewater. The former moved there with his family when he was in fifth grade, and the latter moved there when she was nine years old. Jake’s dad was a firefighter, and the chief inspiration behind why he wanted to become a firefighter when he was an adult.
Jake goes through plenty of dramatic ups and downs over the course of the show, whether it be personal or professional. He visits a half-sibling in an early season 1 episode, but there’s never any mention or hint towards the possibility that he could be related to Eve.
Instead, the show is content to have them be good friends who support each other through tough times, of which there are plenty throughout the season.

Latimer, in particular, praised Fire Country for being able to juggle the personal and professional on a weekly basis.
“Being a queer Black woman being able to play one on network television is kind of huge for me,” she told The Root. “I never saw that growing up and that was one of the reasons why I took the job… We’re dealing with a lot of interpersonal drama, and I can’t wait for more of that to unfold.”
We can’t wait to see where both characters go when Fire Country returns for season 2.
