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.
A great kickbutt type of movie, and Howie's the man!!!

I am new to Howie Long.So i must say only this. After seeing him in Broken Arrow (which he and Travolta should have been the heroes,not C.Slater ) should be the next action man. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2001
I admit, I only watched this movie for one reason. That reason is the incredibly talented and undeniably adorable Barry Pepper. Read morePublished on Aug. 17 2000 by Mallory
I found nothing wrong with Howie Long's performance. There was not one point where I didn't believe him to be a smoke-jumper or a decent actor. Read morePublished on July 31 2000 by Inspector Gadget
