Description

The incredible true story of life as a London firefighter. What is it really like to be a firefighter? How does it feel to respond to an emergency call, to know that someone's life hangs in the balance and every second is critical? What is it like to fight a fire, to battle through the heat and the smoke, to put your own life in danger to save others? How elated do you feel to rescue survivors, to reunite families, and how devastating is it to recover the bodies of those who you didn't reach in time? How do you cope with the trauma of a life spent facing death? Into the Fire offers an unforgettable insight into the highs and lows of life in the fire service. Edric Kennedy-Macfoy has spent over a decade serving in the London Fire Brigade, attending many of the capital's biggest incidents, from the blaze at Grenfell Tower to the Croydon tram derailment. This is his remarkable story.
