  • Short Summary

    Incredible fire in American timber yard - so powerful is the fire that the firemen walk away.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. When they have a fire ... it is a fire!! Huge lumber yard blaze - fanned by gale - sweeps long waterfront, destroying all in its path."

    United States of America.

    Firemen tend to massive blaze at timber yard. They spray water on the burning wood. The heat is obviously intense and the fire very strong.

    Firemen move away as the blaze begins to attack a large shed.

    More shots of the fire in the timber yard. Smoke and flames are climbing into the sky.

    Firemen work hard to control the spray from their water hoses in the strong wind. Unable to make an impact on the blaze they turn away.

    One shed collapses as it is burnt away.
