MacMurray is a forest ranger who suspects a recent rash of fires in his district is arson. He ventures to a nearby town in search of the criminal and meets Goddard, a beautiful rich girl. They fall in love and marry, but his fellow rangers have trouble accepting this female addition to

their domain. Hayward, the daughter of a lumber baron, has always loved MacMurray from afar and is upset by his marriage. Soon the fires get out of hand, and the two women in MacMurray's life pull together to help out. Unfortunately, they become trapped behind a wall of flames, and MacMurray must

hitch a ride on Toomey's small plane in order to parachute into the area. While airborne, he discovers that Toomey (who is flying the plane) is the arsonist, and a fight ensues. Toomey sets the plane on fire and parachutes out, leaving the forest ranger knocked out and in a nosedive. Luckily,

MacMurray comes to and manages to bail out. He lands near the women, helps them finish putting out the fire, and learns that the evil Toomey had parachuted himself right into the fire and died. Director Marshall was obsessed with attaining a realistic look for his film, so he sent his cameramen

into the flames armed with special heat-resistant film, but the cameras caught fire, causing Marshall to abandon the idea.
