• Short Summary

    Children use firefighting equipment to put out the flames in a house in their village.

  • Description

    Moravia (?) - could be in Poland? (or Czechoslovakia? Yugoslavia?).

    A small child comes running out of a smoking building and runs into a nearby school. Lots of other children come running out of the school building, carrying long hoses and wheeling pumps. They make their way to the scene of the fire, pump water from pond through the hoses to try and put out the fire. Others throw buckets of water on the flames.

    Note: Old records say Morovia / Moravia is in Poland. Commentator says the village is Hatisco (?) in Central Europe - cannot find definitive spelling or location.
