'So many people were affected by the fires of 2019/2020 and we wanted to honour their experiences and the losses they suffered - to ensure that their stories were not forgotten. Fires is a series about ordinary people, caught in the unimaginable, and the ways they came together in the face of a devastating natural disaster.'
– Co-creator, showrunner and writer Belinda Chayko
A drama series about the devastating Australian bushfires of 2019/2020, Fires tells the story of how one summer changed us forever. As the fires threaten different communities around the country, new characters appear, whose stories are inspired by the experiences of ordinary people during Australia's black summer. Characters include volunteer firefighters risking everything; families who lose homes and loved ones; people who have to make agonising decisions about whether to stay or flee and those who find themselves responsible for the lives of friends and strangers.
