Synopsis Inspired by extraordinary accounts from people who survived the catastrophic fire season of 2019/20, Fires is a serialised anthology that weaves character studies based on true stories into a narrative about the biggest fires of this century, if not in history. Each episode is based around reports from ordinary people caught in the unimaginable and the impossible choices they were forced to make. From volunteer firefighters risking everything, to families who lost homes and loved ones; from people who had to make agonising decisions about whether to stay or flee, to those who found themselves responsible for the lives of friends and strangers - Fires tells the story of how one summer changed us forever.
