Ventura County Filmmaker Makes Documentary About Struggles Of Detroit Firefighters Dealing With Massive Arson Problem

Posted on Thursday, February 28, 2013 12:50am


A Ventura County filmmaker spent a year documenting some of the most dangerous work being done by firefighters in America.

Tom Putnam is one of the directors of “BURN”, a documentary which looks at Detroit firefighters in action.

With tens of thousands of abandoned buildings in the decaying city, the fire department deals with more arson fires in a week than most big city fire department handle in a year.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco talks with the filmmaker about the project, which is being screened in Ventura County tonight.
