The hills around Laramie are ablaze from a forest fire and Jess Harper goes to help a neighboring rancher, Lars Carlson, and his stepson Garth save their place from the encroaching flames. However, Lars requests help of a different kind from Jess. His mail order bride, Sarah is arriving in Laramie and Lars asks Jess to meet her and keep her in town until the danger passes. Jess reluctantly agrees and meets the stage in Laramie. However, when Sarah learns Lars is facing the fire she demands to go to him at his ranch immediately. Jess reluctantly agrees but on the trip he finds that Sarah is not who Lars believes her to be, but agrees to keep the secret until she is forced to reveal the truth. In addition, Garth is no fan of her believing if she marries the much older Lars, he will lose his interest in the ranch. But Sarah's past has followed her to Laramie and that could pose as much danger to Lars and Jess as the fire burning out of control in the hills. Written by
