A unique machine for fighting oil well fires, in Houston, Texas.

A machine for fighting oil well fires. 75,000 pound fire fighting machine in Houston, Texas. A sign on the machine reads "Leroy Corporation, Houston Oil well Firefighters." View inside the machine as it is operated by LeRoy Ashmore. In a demonstration, the arm of the machine is positioned over a simulated oil well pipe on fire. Water begins to flow over the machine to cool it. The machine lowers a cap over the pipe, extinguishing the fire. (Note: LeRoy actually built 3 of these machines and named them Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, for the Biblical characters, who survived death from a fiery furnace, according to the book of Daniel. The walls of LeRoy's machines were hollow, allowing water pumped through them to circulate and keep the interior control room "water cooled" during fire fighting.)
