"Galaxy Science Fiction", Vol 1 No 5 (February 1951) (ed H L Gold) (magazine, free): Annotated table of contents
Scans of this magazine are online in CBR format as part of a larger package.
"The Fireman" was later expanded into Bradbury's well known novel, "Fahrenheit 451". I've personally read only the longer version, though I think I've seen the shorter original in one of the "Isaac Asimov Presents Great SF Stories" books.
