Nature created it. Humans harnessed it. And now, as global warming lights a flame to our forests, scientists are desperately trying to understand it. Fire has always been a double-edged sword. Through the ages, we’ve used it to keep warm, cook our food, and make tools. But we’ve also been devastated by its destructive path. Filmed in Australia, Canada and the USA, this documentary gives us a firsthand look at the increase in the number and intensity of wildfires: The burning of our forests is wreaking havoc on entire ecosystems and even urban environments. With new cutting-edge technology and scientific research, scientists and fire safety professionals are coming to understand fire’s behaviour. Their discoveries are helping them find solutions to control and prevent future disasters of potentially catastrophic proportions.
