VIDEO: A crew of Shreveport firefighters is working together to bring the mysteries of the firehouses to light and to network television.
"Cooking with Fire," an original series created by Shreveport Fire Department's Captain Allen Dantes, is a documentary-reality style food and travel show.
SFD fireman, chef and host Mark Myers Jr. visits firehouses near and far to join the crews in the kitchen, around the dining table, and in the community to witness what happens during a 24-hour shift.
“We want to take people to different cities and experience the culture of that city and how it ties in with the food that’s prepared, and the history of that firehouse,” Dantes said.
The film crew also follows the firefighters on emergency calls to give audiences a rarely seen behind-the-scenes view.
The series shows how firefighters' bonds are formed over chopping vegetables, as well as rushing into life and death situations together.
