Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Released in ten chapters by low-budget Beacon Films, The Flame Fighter starred one of the silent era's better serial heroes, Herbert Rawlinson, as Jack Sparks, a fireman battling corruption within the department and a gang of smugglers operating out of the San Pedro harbor, where most of the serial was filmed. Distributed through the states' rights circuits, The Flame Fighter came and went but the good-looking, wavy-haired Rawlinson, according to surviving reviews, made a pleasing hero and was well-teamed with one Brenda Lane, a bobbed-haired starlet who appeared regularly in this sort of fare in the mid-1920s. Robert Dillon directed from his own screenplay.
