Huge fire at shipyard in USA.
Fire after fire has hampered American war preparations.
Disasters. 'Fire after fire has hampered American war preparations.' A series of shots of terrible huge fire at a shipyard; next to the water. Basically looks like hell. Opens with a shot panning across scene of fire by water with firemen dragging a hose on pier; huge clouds of smoke. Then a shot of nearly whole screen of smoke blowing; pan to ship in harbour; visible at the edge of the smoke; pier on fire in BG. DS more smoke; piles of logs; men moving. Scary shot of a man on top of some machinery (?) like he's trying to figure out which way to move.
Very scary shot of a man moving over hills of dirt with fire and part of some collapsed structure behind him. DS crowd of men below working a long line of them seem to be hitting something with axes or sledgehammers; as if they are breaking something up; of course smoke covers most of screen. On the right side what looks like a rocky beach; On the left a long flat platform sort of structure; stretching into distance; with smoke pouring and rolling out from underneath it; then blowing into a cloud covering the whole thing; 2 firemen are standing on top of this thing in the middle of the smoke.
