Popeye and Bluto are volunteer firemen in this one, with Popeye working for "Company D" and Bluto employed next door at "Company C". Two very loud alarm bells summon both smoke-eaters to the home of Olive Oyl, which is engulfed in flames (several of them "humanized" in time-honored cartoon tradition). In their efforts to douse the fire, Popeye and Bluto spend most of their time attempting to one-up each other, even unto using their hoses as dueling weapons. When Bluto and Olive are both trapped on the blazing roof, Popeye makes a final assault on the fire--this time backed up by his faithful can of spinach. The Two-Alarm Fire was remade in 1953 as Fireman's Brawl.
