It happened on a frosty, clear night---it started with a telephone message---
John W. Crane (Fire chief); Mr. Parkins
Chief Crane receives a phone call advising of a fire at 346 Elm. When the fire equipment arrives they find that someone is inside, old man Parkins. The firemen save Mr Parkins. Later, when they are making out the fire report, Crane asks Parkins if he knows anyone called Danny, as he made the call. Parkins tells Crane that Danny is his son and that he always looks after him. Crane wonders why Danny is not present and Crane says that his son died in 1942. Further attempts to trace the phone caller are unsuccessful.
