This 1960s footage captures a fire at Bob Henderson Automotive, located at the intersection of Haskell and Ross Avenues in Dallas. Intense smoke overwhelms the small shop, blocking signs for free brake repair and air conditioning services. Dallas firefighters use hoses to douse the flames from the outside, but the smoke persists and darkens in color. A crowd of all ages stands by, watching the drama unfold.
The Dallas Firefighters Museum’s film collection captures a variety of activities performed by the Dallas Firefighters.  While a few films focus on fire fighting and training, most feature community events such as the fair, toy repair, pump races, and even a Miss Flame pageant.
 
The Dallas Firefighter's Museum is housed in one of the city's oldest fire stations; the building served as a working fire station from the time it was built in 1907 until 1975, when the museum took over. The museum aims to preserve the rich history of the Dallas Fire Department through exhibits and educational experiences. The museum’s primary goal is to teach fire safety to children and widen its outreach to the Dallas community. Visit their website at http://www.dallasfiremuseum.com.
