A Fire Inside EP is an extended play by American rock band AFI. It was released on September 29, 1998, through Adeline Records. The EP title is a quote from the introductory track on their previous album Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes, as well as the band name's permanent abbreviation. The EP includes two original songs and two covers.[2] In November 2010, Adeline Records released a special edition pressing on purple vinyl, limited to 500 copies. The EP marked an expansion to the band's sound, with horror punk and gothic rock influences, in addition to previous releases more straight-forward hardcore punk sound.

It is the first release to mention Hunter Burgan as a permanent member, and the last to feature guitarist Mark Stopholese.
