Great but they miss out on lots!
6 August 2018 | by ryanwasham-06228See all my reviews

This is a great representation of CalFire, local California departments, and California wildfires! However, the fire organization is huge, and Netflix missed out on incorporating federal agencies and other local agencies as well as the fact that fires are burning across the west! They need another longer season with other types of firefighters and other locations. This thing is way bigger than what is depicted.
