...Firestorm: Blazing Inferno is worth its price. The footage is first person, similar to a newsreporter. It's independently filmed...basically someone with a video camera but at least he kept the camera steady and microphone off. There is no "on scene" narration or sound but there is a general voiceover of what the footage shows. Such as, "The intense winds force the firefighters to retreat to the coast to make their stand. They try to save this building for an hour but abandon the effort when they run out of water and the roof catches fire." An electric guitar music clip plays in the background but fortunately it isn't annoying Heavy Metal or Hard Rock.
The first tape is about the 1993 in Southern California. The footage shows the fire spreading all the way to the coast and talks about its day-to-day progress like a newsreel. It's 27 minutes long.
The second tape focuses on structure fire clips in progress across America and another Southern CA wildfire. This tape is 23 minutes long.
All tapes are edited and shows water being poured on the fire for a few minutes and then the fire as extinguished before moving to the next clip.
Firestorm doesn't show fire fighting procedures, equipment, tactics, battleplan, or interviews with the firefighters and public. It does show the vehicles briefly (but not closeups). Essentially, it's a cameraman who hitched a ride on a firetruck, got off, and filmed from hotspot to hotspot.
Firestorm does convey the sense of power and awe seeing a wildfire. Highly recommended for the low price.
