Fireman Jim Flynn's real name was also reported as being Andrew Chariglione. He emerged from the railroad yards of Pueblo, Colorado, to gain fame in the ring--eventually challenging reigning champion Jack Johnson in 1912 for the World Heavyweight Title.

In the months before his death at an area hospital of a heart attack, he had been operating a bar in a seedy section of Los Angeles.
