BURN is a documentary about a fire company in Detroit, told through the eyes of its firefighters, who risk their lives to save a city that many have written off as dead.

Along with the foreclosure boom, arson fires in Detroit have skyrocketed.  In fact Detroit has one of the highest arson rates in the country. The reasons vary: Homeowners desperate to get out from under mortgages, gangs and drug dealers out for revenge, bored teens failed by the education system. The end result is a city struggling to cope with one of the highest per capita arson and fire rates in the world.
