    Calais, France.

    Full titles read: "HUGE DOCK FIRE - Striking pictures by Staff Cameraman who flew to and from scene by special aeroplane."

    Various aerial scenes of smoking pouring from warehouses on the waterfront of the docks. L/S's of firemen and workers walking around amongst the smouldering remains of buildings. Some workers are removing large pieces of wood, while firemen pour water onto the remains of the fire. Nice group shots of the firemen amongst the debris.
