A crossing guard is run down, allegedly by Squad 51 en route to an emergency labor, and is investigated by the police. A couple en route to a wedding hits a fire hydrant. A camper on fire arrives at Station 51 with a boy trapped inside, and is taken to Rampart with smoke inhalation and burns, with the help of Dixie, Drs. Early and Morton. The firemen rescue the driver of a semi truck hauling insecticide that overturned and caught fire on the freeway, sending toxic fumes into the air.
