Fire at Durland's

ne_time_now

IMDB lists a 3 minute movie "The Burning of Durland's Riding Academy" in the Edison catalog of the fire that occurred at Durland's Riding Academy, at Sixtieth Street and Eighth Avenue in 1902; The Durland fire (filmed by E. Porter) occurred on Manhattan's west side, but was later retitled Firemen Fighting the Flames at Paterson only because it was a more famous fire.
