Kelly Hansen, the tough boss of a timber crew clearing property owned by Jessie Crain and her niece, Sharon Wilks, is, unknown to anybody else, working to pay back money stolen by his brother, Joe Roberts, who has a changed name, and no love for his brother. Just as the debt is about paid-off, Joe is killed in a truck accident, which starts a blazing forest fire. Written by

The logging industry gets a look in The Blazing Forest as Agnes Moorehead wants to sell off some timber acreage to give her niece Jo Morrow a start in life. For that reason she hires John Payne and Bill Demarest to bring in the logs.
Demarest contributes the financing from a settlement involving a logging accident, but Payne is the hard driving crew chief of the loggers. He has a need for money and it has to do with a no good reprobate of a brother played by Richard Arlen.
The film is shot in some nice color and the climax involving a forest fire is well staged. This Pine-Thomas B film from Paramount is a credit to all involved in the making.
