"With the aid of photographs, film footage and interviews this is a reminiscence of the disastrous fire which destroyed the luxury steamship The Noronic in Toronto harbour on September 17, 1949 with a loss of many lives. The script writer and film director is Harry Rasky, who covered the story as a cub reporter for the Kirkland Lake, Ontario Northern Daily News."
