Her Fireman (1913)
- Summaries (1)
A kind hearted actress who befriended a poor little waif of the street, soon grew to love the child. When she went on the road she found him a home with her old nurse. She realized how much the child meant to her when he was crippled in an accident, for as soon as she heard the news she gave up her position and hurried to his side. The child loved her, too, and she finally decided to abandon the stage and secure a business position, so that she would not be separated from him. The actress had a fair knowledge of stenography and typewriting, ''brushed up" on it, and was engaged on trial by a house on Broadway, New York. On the day she took up her new duties, city officials had arranged for a fire drill on an extensive scale, but the new employee did not know of it. When the fire alarm sounded and the engines clattered up, she was badly frightened and hardly able to follow the others who went out unconcernedly. On the street, her terror was noticed by a handsome young fireman, who reassured her by telling her it "was only a drill." Later the young fireman was transferred to an engine house in the outskirts of the city, and there he and the former actress met. They were mutually attracted, and their affection grew. On one of his days off, the fireman invited the girl to go rowing on the river, and she accepted, leaving her little protégé in the care of her nurse. Through this woman's carelessness the house caught fire, and the woman ran out, shrieking with fear, forgetting the child, whose broken leg rendered him helpless. Fortunately the girl and the fireman were not far away, and from their boat on the river, saw the fire. The man rowed hastily to shore and although the house was by this time all ablaze, he bravely battled his way in and rescued the child, thereby securely winning the affections of the girl he had learned to dearly love.
