Storyline

"Vigili di tutto il mondo unitevi" è il motto che sovrasta il luogo di raduno del corpo volontario dei pompieri di Viggiù. Il comandante è preoccupato: la figlia Fiamma è scomparsa da due settimane. Quando sul giornale legge il suo nome sulla locandina pubblicitaria di una rivista corre a cercare la figlia all'insaputa della moglie Gaetana. Accorrono poi in massa tutti i vigili per difendere l'onore del corpo messo in ridicolo da una canzone. Infine arriva anche Gaetana alla ricerca del marito. Il tutto tra un numero e l'altro della rivista. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia
