Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A series within a series, Firehouse was a five-part component of the weekly network newsmagazine Dateline. Like many another post-September 11th documentary series, this one paid tribute to those hitherto unsung heroes, the firefighters of America. The episodes were filmed in Queens, NY; Camden, NJ; Miami, FL; and San Francisco, CA. Although Brian Wilson was the series' official host and narrator, for the most part the producers allowed the vivid and sometimes heartbreaking images to speak for themselves. Dateline NBC: Firehouse was originally broadcast from July 19 to August 9, 2002.
