Berkeley Fire, 1923 (film #444 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: News]

More newsreel footage from the same fire documented in Berkeley, California Fire. This clip features some hyperbolic title cards ("BERKELEY BURNS!") and footage of people trying to salvage random possessions, including one thoroughly befuddled guy who doesn't know what to do with a mirror. Like the other film, this has mostly historical value.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: **.
