    Fire in USA.

    United States of America.

    Aerial MS panning over city; with smoke billowing into the sky from a large area in background. Pan across neighbourhood in panic: the nearest houses not yet on fire but some in very near distance are totally burned up and the flames are still raging. People in foreground moving away from fire; some soldiers in shot. MS more people on another street a short distance from the fire - pan across on people (African-American / black) moving furniture outside trying to salvage something from the fire, down the street a man is fighting fire with hose.

    Pan on street after fire; ruins; charred trees; parts of walls standing. Shot of some men by a wall of a 2-storey house that is standing alone - they are pushing with poles; trying to push it over. Shot of one man by the wall; doing one final thing that causes it to collapse; falling bricks sending up a lot of smoke. The man runs. Scene ends with the man by some trees; looking back.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
