Product Description

BURN is an action-packed, award-winning film exploring human struggles, hope and personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds. From executive producer Denis Leary, this riveting and inspiring film spends a year with Detroit firefighters, who are charged with the thankless task of saving a city many have written off as dead. With vast stretches of abandoned buildings, the highest arson rate in the country, and a budget crisis of epic proportions, these brave men and women risk injury, disablement, and death to try and make a difference for the city they call home. The firefighters worst fears are realized when a charismatic young fireman is devastatingly injured on the job. The brotherhood is tested when the city turns to a new fire commissioner to shake up the system with hard-line decisions and drastic, often controversial measures. Closer than you've ever been, BURN takes you into the fires and into the lives of those who fight them in the most overworked and worst-funded fire department in the United States.

We have a nephew who is still on the Dept . My husbands brother retired after 38yrs. fighting fires in Detroit , my husband & his bro. were both there in July of 1967 trying to keep the city from burning down & here we are almost 50yrs. later still trying to save that thankless city. Every one should see this DVD and be angry with a city that is trying to blame there problems on the retired police & fire pensions. They were earned, they are not an entitlement. There are people in that city getting far more in benefits for doing nothing .While these brave men may loose theres .Buy this DVD some of the money will go to buy equipment for the men still on the job . God bless them and keep them safe.

I saw this in the theater with a group from my fire department and we all came away very impressed. BURN not only tells the story of the challenges, struggles and positives of the firefighters of Detroit, but also shines a larger light on the problems of urban decay and a dying city. Whether you are part of the fire and emergency services world or not, I highly recommend giving BURN a watch. It's a great view into the world of the firehouse and what these men and women, from chief to rookie, goes up against every day.

I saw this at the theatre when it first came out. It was a very informative look at the problems and pressures that DFD face on a daily basis. Definitely a must see. Highly recommended.

I bought this movie expecting it to be as good as people made it sound. It exceeded expectations, and I plan to buy the DVD asap. Keep in mind this is a DIGITAL copy of the documentary. Well worth the money, and the story itself is worth buying!

this grass roots movie/documentary shows in gritty detail the life at one fire station. one year. it explores the up front and personal lives at one station. i recommend buying this movie, and supporting the department through the internet sites.this is NOT hollywood!~

Awesome movie of city firefighters! I wish it could have gone into more detail; but at least they focused on one thing, without going in many directions. Great overview of a major fire department. Loved the action and real life situations without Hollywood's BS getting in the way. I am a former volunteer firefighter for South Jersey.

One of the best movie/documentaries of the year! Highly recommended to all who want to learn more about the dire situation in Detroit and how it has impacted the fire service. As a fireman myself, this really hit home! What an awesome movie for the whole family to enjoy together!
