Synopsis

In the summer of 2000, brush and forest fires in America raged as never before, in a season which saw six million acres reduced to ash. When wildfires strike, it's up to elite forces of specially trained firefighters such as the Arrowhead Hotshots to contain and extinguish the blaze. Nova: Fire Wars takes a look at the work of the Arrowhead Hotshots, how they fight fires, what equipment they use, what role fire plays in the ecosystem of a forest, and why some firefighters and environmentalists feel we need to take a new approach to dealing with fires. Produced as part of the awarding winning PBS science series Nova, Nova: Fire Wars was first broadcast on May 7, 2002. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
