PEORIA, Ill -- Last week we showed you what goes on behind the scenes of NBC's Chicago Fire when producers attempt to realistically portray the lives of fire fighters and paramedics, but do area fire fighters find the show relatable?

We sat down with one crew at Fire Station 3 in Peoria to watch an episode of the show that dramatizes the lives of first responders.

After spending a day with the fire crew and following them on a few emergency callss, we asked if the show is realistic or if Hollywood takes too many liberties.

Hear what they have to say after Wednesday night's new episode of Chicago Fire, and be sure to check out our Facebook page and let us now what you think of the show.
