Film Description:
"Forest-fire fighting in mountainous British Columbia has been developed with the precision of a military operation. This film shows the whole pattern of attack, from the time smoke is sighted from watch-tower or spotter plane until the outbreak is brought under control. Small crews dropped by helicopter, water bombers, chemical-carrying aircraft, or the all-out offensive of a ground attack -- all these are ready to swing into action during the critical dry spell of summer."
