Playing with matches, Fibber takes on a singed appearance. Mayor Latrivia pops in to ask Fibber to temporarily fill in as Fire Commissioner. Nick Depoppolus enters to talk about a fire hazard down at his restaurant, and how it affected his steaks. As Fibber plans to keep the city safe, the Kingsmen sing, Tapeoka.
As Fibber gets a speach ready for the chamber of commerce, he chats with Mirt the phone operator. Harlowe Wilcox enters, and manages to give it the old college try to twist the fire theme into a commercial.
Teeny enters to ask for a story. Fibber gets a little confused over indians, Chinese, and beans. What does that have to do with mountain lions? Martha Tilton sings, Easy Street.
Downtown, Fibber wraps up his speach, and fields catcalls from his listeners. To test the responsiveness of the fire department, and under Fibbers instructions, Molly phones in a false alarm. What will Abigail Uppington have to say on the matter? Wallace Wimple reads a poem while the crowd waits. What has Sweetie Face done to help with the skills of the brave firemen of Wistful Vista. Sirens blare outside, but is there something wrong?
