Abstract:

"Another of those stirring fire scenes which have proved so popular. There are ten pieces of apparatus in the picture. Every piece fully manned is under full headway, and is shown almost head-on to the beholder. Several of the engines and wagons are drawn by three horses abreast. Fireman appear putting on their coats, etc., while the engines and trucks rush by. Many of the engine horses in the picture are white and the speed at which they break into the scene and pass full size under the very eye of the observer is startling. The engines are fired up and there are dust, steam and smoke effects all through the film. This picture is very full and complete"--F.Z. Maguire & Co. catalogue.
