Today the MSN photo blog had a photo here that:

http://photoblog.msnbc.msn.com/_news....ars-ago

includes a photo (the fourth one down) of female firefighters supposedly helping fight fires during the attack.  I seriously question the authenticity of this image.  First, to the best of my knowledge, at this time there were very few women serving in the armed forces outside of medical and administrative positions.  Secondly, the racial makeup of this image also seems too politically correct to be believable for the time.   Finally, the posing looks staged to me, almost like the photographer had lineup for Rosenthal's Iwo Jima Flag Raising in mind.  The photo just does not ring true to me.

I have never seen this photo before, in studying Pearl Harbor and the Pacific War for over 40 years.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
