  • Short Summary

    Firemen fight to put out the blaze of a riverside timber yard in Kingston.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Riverside Timber Yard Blaze - Hero-Firemen, in an inferno of heat, fight the flames unceasingly for nearly 2 days."

    Kingston, Surrey (?).

    Various shots of the smoking timber yard - quite difficult to make out in amid the smoke! Firemen hold hoses from Kingston Bridge over the burning yard.

    Intertitle reads: "Famous old Kingston Bridge was seriously damaged by heat."
    Panning L/S of the smoking timber yard and Kingston Bridge - it doesn't look too damaged from this angle but traffic and pedestrians are on the far side of the bridge from the blaze.
