Major fire somewhere in USA burns down residential neighbourhood.
Fire in USA.
United States of America.
Aerial MS panning over city; with smoke billowing into the sky from a large area in background. Pan across neighbourhood in panic: the nearest houses not yet on fire but some in very near distance are totally burned up and the flames are still raging. People in foreground moving away from fire; some soldiers in shot. MS more people on another street a short distance from the fire - pan across on people (African-American / black) moving furniture outside trying to salvage something from the fire, down the street a man is fighting fire with hose.
Pan on street after fire; ruins; charred trees; parts of walls standing. Shot of some men by a wall of a 2-storey house that is standing alone - they are pushing with poles; trying to push it over. Shot of one man by the wall; doing one final thing that causes it to collapse; falling bricks sending up a lot of smoke. The man runs. Scene ends with the man by some trees; looking back.
