Sicknote tries to read his planned speech for the dinner with the Boulogne Fire Brigade. A quip from Malcolm gets everyone laughing and Sicknote melodramatically resigns as committee chairman. Blue Watch are woken by a call to a huge warehouse fire which is rapidly escalating. Josie also appears with her crew from Charlton. Nick, Kate and Recall are sent in to find a missing security guard. A massive explosion rips through the building and leaves Recall injured and all three trapped and running low on air.
At ground level, other crew members are sent to look for hydrants. Bayleaf locates one under a lorry and attaches a standpipe to it with Hallam's help. Suddenly the wall collapses, burying them both. As the fire continues to spread ACO Bulstrode arrives, followed by the Chief Fire Officer. Josie's team locate Nick, Kate and Recall and help bring them out to safety. The following morning, Sandra, Laura and Clare are all informed of their husbands' plight by Brigade officers. Hallam is located with the vibraphone and dragged out alive, but Bayleaf is still missing.
