Scope and content

Item is an organizational record film documenting the GranTree Furniture Rental fire, the fire at Lion's Gate Fisheries, Tullock Western fisheries, and Central Native Fisherman's Co-operative, and an apartment building fire in the West End.

The third segment shows firefighters fighting a fire at a West End apartment building, coroners removing the bodies, and an interview with a resident, Frank Toshack.
