9 Fires Documentary

In early 2012, a series of campus-related fires occurred across the nation in a very short period of time. Individually, these fires were significant and, in some cases, tragic. Collectively, they paint a picture of the fires happening at campuses from Massachusetts to Oregon that needed to be told.

This documentary will follow what happened after these 9 fires and features interviews with the survivors, the families, the schools, the fire department. This documentary tells “the rest of the story” which so often is not heard.
