Sinopsis: A 7.1 earthquake strikes S.F. on 10/17/89. Not only do ruptured gas lines cause a major fire in the Marina District, but broken underground mains leave firefighters without water to battle the spreading flames. So begins the heroic adventure of Frankie, the portable hydrant, and the Fireboat Phoenix.
