Four untrained firefighters save three children that were trapped in a building that was on fire, using crude method: by application of water and detergents.
The heroes managed to crawled into the building with hose connected to a tanker. The tanker supplies water mixed with detergents (klin). Which was used to extinguished the fire and save those children, according to the poster.
