ACTUAL HAPPENINGS AT THE GARMAN’S FARM WHERE A TERRIBLE FIRE, WHICH BURNED 50 HOMES, WAS STOPPED AT THEIR DOOR. THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON IN THE FILM IS THE WAY IN WHICH EACH OF THE GARMAN CHILDREN RISES TO THE EMERGENCY, AND DOES HIS PART. Filmed in and around the Chatsworth fire of 1947 in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, at a time when many parts of the San Fernando Valley were still farming communities.
