This DVD is approximately 47 minutes in length and it covers a four day New Year’s weekend in 2011-12. Within that time there was a total of 53 incidents. The fires took place in the districts of Hollywood, West Hollywood, North Hollywood, Burbank, Studio City , Sun Valley and Sherman Oaks. Pretty much all of the fires involved autos with and sometimes without extensions to structures above. Most of the fires stated in carports and some were in garages. All are spectacular with many fully involved vehicles. That is the aim of arsonists! Some of the complexes are large whit a whole line of cars in the carports making for a horrific sight of burning. .Firefighters are kept rather busy stretching handlines and raising aerials for ventilation. Each incident covered with a location, date, type of situation and which fire station is the first due in the district (ex. LAFD FS 27.) Many expensive autos were destroyed. In the end there was an arsonist aerested. There was also a fire in an abandoned two story church but I do not think that it was attributed to the arsonist. There is no narration, just the information given on the screen at the start of each incident, however the viewer can hear verbal exchanges among the firefighters in trhe course of their operations
