Portrait of the Utrecht Fire Brigade, shot in 1918 by Willy Mullens when he made a film about the City of Utrecht. Specially for the filmmaker, the fire brigade turned out with all its material to put out a 'fire' in the Fruithal, that was then on Vreeburg. The film also comprises shots of first aid lessons, rescuing victims with the aid of a sheet and other spectacular pictures.
