Wildfire Hotshot Firefighters Memorialized in New Feature Film ‘Only The Brave’
Fire season is here. We are already seeing a handful of fires igniting all over the state. For people all over the western U.S, it is becoming just another season that happens between summer and fall. The brave men and women that put their lives on the line battling these blazes are true heroes. It is about time that they get some recognition on the "silver screen."
Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges star in an upcoming movie called "Only The Brave." The movie depicts what life is like as a wildland firefighter in the west. It is the story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.
Just a little over 4 years ago, 19 firefighters lost their lives trying to protect their community from a roaring fire just outside of Phoenix, AZ. This October their story will be told in theaters around the world. See the first trailer for the upcoming new movie "Only The Brave."
