The Our Gang kids form a volunteer fire brigade, with little Jackie Condon appointed Chief because he happens to own a fireman's hat. After constructing a variety of ramshackle firefighting devices, the youngsters get the opportunity to prove their mettle by putting out what they think is a roaring blaze -- but is actually a smoking still owned by a pair of moonshiners. Among the Gang members appearing in this silent two-reeler is black youngster Allen "Farina" Hoskins, making his series debut. Originally released on October 8, 1922, Fire Fighters is still available, though many current prints lack a bizarre opening-reel sequence involving the "social life" of a well-heeled pet duck!
