From executive producer Denis Leary, BURN is an action-packed, award-winning film exploring human struggles, hope and personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.
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.
