Storyline

The chief of the fire department has a beautiful daughter for whom he has hopes of a wealthy and advantageous marriage, but contrary to prearranged plans of this kind, Ellen has given her heart to a young fire laddie, and much against her father's will, marries Jack Lowney. This so enrages the old fire fighter that he turns his back on his daughter and son-in-law and will not be reconciled. Now the unexpected happens. Jack is put to a test and proves his worth. The Chief's residence burns and he and his wife are saved from a fearful death by the heroism and self-sacrifice of the boy whom they have despised. Reconciliation follows. The situations are thrilling and wonderfully real. The fire department of the great city was enlisted for the production and the hazardous life of a fireman is vividly portrayed in this wonderful film story. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Often too real to be comfortable
18 July 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Everybody admires the fireman, and there is a halo of romance about the chief of a department which makes him particularly attractive. This story of a fire chief's daughter increases the romance and adds to attractions of the firemen themselves by mixing up a pretty girl with them. The story is told in the Selig way, with elaborate and appropriate stage settings and with scenes which are often too real to be comfortable. But the picture will prove far more attractive than the usual run, perhaps, and the audience will enjoy it, gaining in smaller towns which have no paid department an accurate impression of what it means to be a fireman in a large city. - The Moving Picture World, July 16, 1910
