    Firemen show of their skills in a mock rescue from a blaze.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. London's Fire Fighters. Brigade's thrilling demonstration at Annual Display."

    London.

    People act out a scene as a demonstration of London Fire Brigade (LFB) techniques.

    A man points up at a high window as a fire engine arrives on the scene. Firemen raise extendable ladders and climb up to rescue people from upper stories of a house. Smoke is coming out of the windows. A person is carried down the ladder. Hoses are now carried up and firemen work to put out the flames. A 'victim' is lowered by rope from the top of the tower. People sit and watch the demonstration.
