(4 out of 5 stars)
"What we have here is a 2 DVD set with film clips of vairous fires. They are from the Stillman fire collection. Most of the films are from the 1940's. There are scenes of ships ablaze, individual buildings burning, dock fires etc. A few famous fires, such as the LaSalle Hotel fire and the Winecoff Hotel fires (both in 1946) are included. Also there are scenes of people who perished in fires, and may be disturbing to some people. I give this four stars because of the musical score. Not too bad in itself, but it gets repititious and annoying. Otherwise, it is a fascinating set."
