“On Fire” set to hit theaters today (includes video story)

“On Fire,” a new film about the threat of wildfires to communities, arrives in theaters today, Sept. 29.

This cinematic thriller follows a family’s desperate struggle for survival amidst a blazing inferno.

Directorial challenges emerged during production when the director fell ill, but the star of the film, Peter Facinelli, stepped into the director role.

Despite the backdrop of a SAG-AFTRA strike, the cast of this independently produced film was able to discuss “On Fire” thanks to an interim agreement.

The movie is a compelling and timely exploration of the human spirit’s resilience in the face of nature’s fury.
