Synopsis Torch and Toro are working at a steel mill melting slag when they notice a fight break out among the men. They convince the men to avoid needless fighting and go back to work. Later, they clock out at the end of the shift and see a woman harassed by three men on the street. After they give her a hand she tells them that her step-father owns a rival mill and is planning sabotage. The step-father sends three goons to blackjack Torch, Toro and his daughter and dispose of their bodies in a pond. The water revives Torch and he realizes if he takes the time to dive for them, his friends will drown, so he uses his flame to evaporate the pond and save Toro and the girl. They return to their place of employment and help fight off the would-be wreckers.
