Malloy and Reed attend to a call of a possible jumper from an apartment building window, and another residential call of a landlady concerned about one of her long term tenants with lung and heart issues who she believes is unconscious in his unit. But it's their first call of the shift that keeps them the most preoccupied. They spot smoke, which ends up being an out of control warehouse fire. When they actually arrive on the scene - they being the first of the emergency responders - they spot a young man rushing into the warehouse upon hearing screams for help inside.

Upon arrival at the Perez home, Lauro's father is surprised at the news as Lauro himself never mentioned anything about the fire, but he, like everyone else, is proud of his son, and wants to honor Lauro in his own way.

The paramedics that arrived at the fire were incompetent. They rushed to help victims of a fire. They brought along a bag of equipment. But, all they did for the most seriously affected victim was pick him up by his supposedly broken leg to get him onto a cart. They brought a bag of equipment but never opened it. They were told the old man had swallowed a lot of smoke. And we never saw them even attempting to give him oxygen, or aid his breathing in any way. His broken leg was thrown around repeatedly as they got him situated on the cart. But they never splinted the leg in any way. The other injured party wasn't even looked at by them. And lastly, one of the paramedics didn't seem to know how to load the cart into the ambulance. One of them tried lifting the cart by using the device that's there to allow for pulling the cart, while walking. All in all a badly staged and acted scene. See more
