    Item title reads - Great Gas factory explosion. Pathe cameraman secures - at great risk - actual pictures as thousands of cylinders explode ... Berlin. Germany.

    L/S of the fire raging and cylinders exploding, belching out flames. M/S as the cameraman films it through an open window. Various shots as the explosions continue and smoke fills the sky, debris is scattered around the area. Flames cause clouds to mushroom upwards.

    Intertitle - '... surrounding district for miles, was evacuated - but he stuck on!' M/S of the empty cylinders lying all over the ground, flames burn among them.

    Intertitle - '... like a battlefield!...' L/S of the cylinders lying among bushes and shrubs, various shots of the rubble and wreckage of the factory, some walls are still standing. L/S of a charred tree and smoking ruins, it looks like a bomb site.
