3000 Degrees is the story six firemen who died in a Worcester warehouse fire on December 3, 1999. The warehouse was a big, brick, windowless monster with a labyrinthine interior that was hard to navigate in daytime, sans fire. When it became dark, filled with smoke and flame, it was a death maze. There's not enough story here to support a book. However, he structures these as flashbacks that are interspersed throughout the main narrative.

My husband is the Assistant Chief of our local fire department, he has been in the fire service for over 20 years. When the Worcester Cold Storage fire occurred, it rocked the fire service across the country, but being only a short 30-minute drive from our hometown, he and his brothers and sisters in the local departments felt the loss deeply. My husband, in fact, attended the funeral for "the Worcester 6." He had always talked about this book, and only recently did I myself pick it up to read. The story of these brave and heroic men, their families, and their departments is deeply moving. As a firewife, I felt deeply what the firefighters and their friends and families felt, I found myself unable to stop turning the pages. Sean Flynn did his homework and told this story tactfully and respectfully.

One of the best books on a structure fire that I have ever read. It gives you a deep look into not just the tragedy, but them men's lives leading up to that fateful call. Even though the outcome was known it was a page turner that I could not put down. Such a heartbreaking event and this book brings it to life for the reader.

extremely sad, but, a necessary book for the public to read and understand why our firefighters should have the best equipment, the best communications and should always be admired and remembered for the sacrifices they and their family make. this was entirely avoidable and i should hope no fire department has to experience this again. it's an important book for anyone to read so all will understand why our firefighters should always have the best tools we can give them.

With a combination of excellent reporting skills and the ability to weave several stories together into a coherent whole, this is an excellent narrative of deaths that should not have happened....almost could not have happened...yet did happen. It seemed as if all the elements were working together against the firemen that night. Their stories introduce you to the typical hero next door who is the average fireman. You will be glad you met these men and their families and you will grieve for them. As painful as the story is, I am very glad I read this book. It is highly recommended.

This is one of the most gripping true life stories ever. The characters are so well described that the reader will deeply care about each and every one. The writer accurately surmised what must have been in the minds of the firefighters and their families.

Nicely written, not by a reporter, but by someone who understands the brotherhood of the firehouse and on the scene. There is a bond born out of bloodlines generations long. This is about as real as it can get for someone without feeling the sting of smoke and gases in their eyes and lungs as conditions go from really bad to worse case. Thank you to those who told this story, my prayers go out to the family friends of the fallen. They will never be forgotten....

When people meet someone new they say that now they can out a face with the name. This book provided such great information that it really gives you a look into the life and puts a personal story to the names that you hear.
I really appreciated how this book wrote about the firemen. It wasn't all bravado and nonsense. It showed how human and caring they were. Not only for their brothers but for their families and community as well. Also, I greatly appreciated how the author paid tribute to the men's families and recognized the grief and hardship that they faced after this event.
