Popeye and Bluto run adjoining (and competing) fire companies. When Olive's huge house catches fire, they are soon more interested in fighting each other than the fire. When Bluto goes to the roof to rescue Olive, the fire strands him there. Popeye eats his spinach and rescues them, but it's too late for the house. Written by

Olive Oyl's house catches on fire so rival firemen Popeye and Bluto race to the scene to try and save her. This here is one of the lesser shorts I've seen in the series as there aren't too many laughs to be had. I found most of the jokes to be rather weak and overall the film didn't feature the strongest writing. The animation was quite good however and this includes one scene where Olive runs from window to window to get help only to have the fire following her each step of the way. Popeye and Bluto do their usual fighting but nothing here comes off very fresh.
