Firestorm is a documentary film that celebrates the spirit of community, and the heroism of the firefighters, police, and an untold number of volunteers who devoted their time helping others during one of the most dramatic events in the history of Canada: the Okanagan Mountain Forest Fire of 2003.

Ten years later, the film searches for untold stories and unpublished images to evoke the memories of the Okanagan residents who lived through the faithful days of August 2003. It will reflect on how the fire shaped and changed their lives. It will give back to the community that gave so much to so many.

    We ordered a copy of the DVD to see what happened in the 2003 fires and how it impacted the city of Kelowna. However, while very intrigued by the compelling stories and shocking fire footage, we were left hanging by the ending. How many days passed before the fire was under control? How did the firestorm finally end?

    It would have helped to see a conclusion to the story for those who hadn’t lived through the experience in Kelowna during the firestorm.
