This inexpensive "outdoor" actioner is set in a logging camp, where the crooked supervisor busies himself by stealing lumber from the owner. The villain manages to escape detection, principally because he's engaged to the owner's daughter. A handsome young logger gets wind of the supervisor's scheme, whereupon he and the heroine are marooned in the middle of a raging forest fire. The hero rescues the heroine, losing his eyesight in the process but winning her hand in marriage. Tired of waiting on her incapacitated husband hand-and-foot, the girl begins keeping time with the villain, never suspecting that it was he who set off the forest fire in the first place. But the hero regains his vision in time to take care of the bad guy once and for all. Top-billed in Forest Havoc is one Forrest Stanley, cast in the role of "Ronald McDonald" (no kidding!)
