  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. Smart work! by London's fire fighters - quickly quells Garage fire in heart of West End."

    London.

    Fire bells ring as smoke rises above the rooftops of London's West End.

    Firemen arrive on the scene on their fire engine.

    Various shots of the fire fighters at work trying to put out a fearsome blaze in Soho. Flames and smoke are pouring from the building which is just off Noel Street. The fire engine has extended its ladder and a fire man is standing high in the air and spraying water from his hose.
