Summary
Few places on the planet are immune to wildfires as part of natural forest life cycles. This program explores the phenomenon, from the outbreaks that hit Australia, California, and Southern Europe each summer, to the fires that devour the humid rainforests of the Amazon and Indonesia, causing havoc and creating environmental disaster. Witness fire fighters facing extreme danger, battling mighty walls of flame, and the techniques they use to extinguish turbulent blazes. Combining footage of firestorms with first person accounts from survivors, Forest Fires is a compendium of some of the world's most deadly wildfires of recent times, including the 1997-1998 Southeast Asia inferno that decimated 15 million acres and created a regional economic and ecological disaster
