  • Description

    Fire in USA. United States of America.

    Disasters. Fire on a residential street USA. Opens with shot of 2-story frame house with flames pouring out of windows; very dramatic & scary. Slow pan to left on collapsed houses in flames; trees blowing around and 2 soldiers with rifles slowly walking up the street; on patrol; guarding the area; camera stays on one of them. Two men in civilian dress start to walk up the street and are turned back by soldier; who actually points his rifle at them. No firemen in sight which is odd. This is kind of a weird; spooky bit of film.
