Long considered lost, the final reel of Blazing Barriers was found by the Film Archive of Canada and presented at the Northeast Historic Film Silent Film festival in Bucksport, Maine on July 17, 2002. The reel consists of the climax where the forest is ablaze, and can only be saved if the covered bridge over the river is blown up. The film was produced in Maine and the spectacular "special effects" were achieved by actually light a forest on fire. Northeast Historic Film is an archive located in Bucksport Maine that specializes in films relating to the northeastern region of the United States, primarily Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
