How do you control a force of nature as destructive and unpredictable as a wildfire? "INSIDE" travels onto the front lines of a battle as old as history, following a courageous team of firefighters as they work tirelessly to contain a fast-moving fire that threatens one of California’s largest state parks and the communities that surround it.
