***SPOILERS*** Undercover police woman Casey Jones, Beverly Garland, is out to solve an arson fire that totally destroyed the Risco wear house in midtown Manhattan.Using the ales of Betty Sherwood Jones gets a job at Risco Products in order to find out exactly who was responsible for the arson fire which is suspected to be former mental patient Michele, Betty Lou Holland. Where almost everyone including the boss Mr. Risco, Howard Weirum, suspect that Michele committed the arson Casey Jones makes it a point to befriend her and thus get to the bottom of all this. As it soon turned out the fire was an act of insurance fraud in order to collect some $50,000.00 of insurance money in damages. And it's now up to Casey Jones to find out not just who committed the arson but who hired him or her to do it!

As Casey Jones soon finds out it was after a wild party were everyone got drunk that the wear house fire started. What policewoman Jones is to discover is that the one person who wasn't drunk at the time but faced being drunk so good that he was put in the police station drunk tank before the fire started, as to clear him from committing the arson, who was the person who in fact started it. With that in mind Casey Jones plans to see, at the next company party, who's incapable of getting drunk, due to his or her medical condition, and then find the arsonist. But ever more important have him under thresh of a long prison sentence expose the person who hired him to commit the arson.

This Decoy/Police Woman episode also touches on mental illness and how former mental patients like Michell should be given a second chance in life after they are fully recovered from their illness. Michele who like policewoman Casey Jones suspect was totally innocent of the arson fire. But it was her co workers who thought that she in fact committed the crime because of her once suffering from mental illness. As it turned out the real arsonist was completely sane but sane enough to finger the person who hired him in order to get a lighter sentence.
