Hello all,

Just had a request for film footage that shows a forest fire. All that=20
I can think of at the moment is Bambi, but go figure, apparently that=20
won't fit the bill. The faculty seemed to think that something of the=20
sort could be found in old westerns, etc. but I'm drawing a blank. =
This=20
is for use within the next several days, so I'm hoping for suggestions=20
of films that might already be in our collection. (We won't have time=20
to buy stock footage or the like.) Thanks in advance!

Best,
