- Flames are visible coming out of the roof. One hose is stretched through an open door. Several men stand around watching and one is stepping over the hose headed toward the door. No firemen are visible. A coating of snow is on the ground. The building appears to be on pilings so may be on a waterfront. It is long and low with wooden siding and has several doorways along the side. Black smoke can be seen at one doorway. A shed-like structure is at the end of the building.

Served many years in Alaska for P.A.F. and eventually used in 1963 as a trawler by Andy Ness. Shown flying an American flag, a P.A.F. banner, a Nelseco Diesel banner and a 48-star flag. Six men in hats and overcoats are on board.
