Detroit has more fires than any city in the United States: A population drop from 1.85 million in 1950 to near 700,000 today has left 80,000 abandoned structures as kindling. The result is a city with 30,000 fire calls a year—the highest fire-load in America. On average, Detroit sees 30 structure fires daily, of which 90% are estimated to be intentional. By comparison, Los Angeles, with a population of 4 million, sees only 11 structure fires per day. To make matters worse, with Detroit on the verge of bankruptcy, the Detroit Fire Department is one of the worst funded departments in the world. Burn takes audiences to the front lines of Detroit and into the fires and lives of the men who fight them, exploring human struggles, hope and personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.
