Policeman Tom Riley rescues Mary Allen from the unwelcome advances of Jack Nichols, a political "fixer"; escorting her home, he wins her friendship. The same evening, his brother, fireman Joe Riley, is introduced to Mary by Marty Allen, and at home each brother tells Mrs. Riley of the wonderful girl he has met, neither realizing she is the same girl. Both boys propose to Mary, who agrees to give her answer at her birthday party; as a result, bad feeling springs up between them. Tom receives a big reward for capturing a criminal and also gets a promotion. Joe, becoming discouraged, quarrels with Mary and resigns from the fire department. The police corner Corrigan and Nichols' headquarters, a fire ensues, and Joe makes a spectacular rescue of Tom. Joe learns that Mary actually loves Tom, and reconciles himself with Jennie, a reporter.
