Storyline

Waco, Texas. On February 28th 1993 the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms raid a compound belonging to a religious cult called the Branch Davidians. They attempt to arrest cult leader David Koresh for alleged firearms offences. A gunfight breaks out that leaves six Branch Davidians and four ATF agents dead. The FBI arrives to take control but the situation escalates into one of the Americas longest sieges. After a fifty-one day stand off the FBI launches a dawn assault. Using military tanks they inject tear gas through the walls and windows in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out. Rather than surrender, besieged cult members set fire to their compound. In less than twenty minutes the entire building is alight. Seventy-six people including two pregnant women and twenty-eight children were killed during the fire. Seconds from Disaster counts down to the moment fire breaks out and investigates whether the Branch Davidians were led to their deaths by charismatic cult leader ...
