Peter stumbles upon a house fire in progress before the fire department arrives, and he is able to rescue a young woman. When Megan goes to the scene of the fire, she discovers that there is another victim who perished. This dismays Peter, who didn't know there was someone else in the house, and he now has a personal attachment to this case. As Megan begins her investigation, she is usurped by veteran arson investigator Ray Easton and his young colleague, Skip, who challenge her at every step. When Megan complains to her boss, Kate wryly remarks that people usually find Megan impossible to work with, and the tension between the two heats up more.
