Fire blight is a tough one as there is no cure. Pruning, timely application of chemicals and/or proper fertilization can help but often just delays the inevitable .
I am including some informational links:

All though these articles are from other states, fire blight is the same through out the country. If the tree is vital to your landscape you may want to consider consulting a Certified Arborist.
