Synopsis: An entertaining and informative look at firefighting, from the equipment to the techniques, both in history and today. Enhanced with black and white photos, anecdotes from firefighters, and fire prevention and safety tips.

From the Back Cover: “Lively and informative, this is an excellent addition to nonfiction collections.”
School Library Journal

“[T]he trove of useful data on current firefighting techniques and gadgetry...will be happily plundered by young report writers and would-be firefighters.”
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Cathching Fire is likely to become a well-thumbed volume to which the reader returns repeatedly. It is superbly organized...Thoroughly and meticulously researched, the book provides a compendium of information about fire itself and the role of firefighters.”
Canadian Children’s Literature

Catching Fire covers a lot of ground, from ancient fire worship to how modern technology can be used to catch arsonists. The 10 chapters clearly explain what fire is, how it works and how it can be defeated once it gets out of control.”
Quill & Quire
