Balloon Fire

Balloon Fire

Fire at Thrill Circus
Dated: July 4, 1941

Note: Unexpected thrill at the Hollywood Thrill Circus when the balloon burst into flames just before it was slated to ascend. A gust of wind blew an open flame toward the edge of the balloon and ignited it. It took about a minute and a half to burn. No one was seriously hurt.
