Brenda and Priority Homicide investigate the death of a woman who was caught in a major wild fire. The medical examiner determines that she was dead before the fire started - there was no smoke residue in her lungs and her skull was broken - and he believes she may in fact have been the fire's epicenter. They have an immediate suspect in Bill Croelich, an arsonist who has a history of setting people on fire. He turns himself into the police and is able to lead them to exactly where the fire began. He denies having anything to do with it however. The victim is eventually identified as Linda Harrell, 35, a waitress who has has restraining orders issued against her by different men. Brenda soon begins to wonder just how the arsonist managed to get away given that the police and fire departments had the area locked down tight soon after the fire began. Meanwhile, Brenda is worried that the landlord will learn that they have a cat in their supposedly pet-free house. Written by
Did You Know?
It's crazy, you know, having a wildlife park in the center of a city. I look around at your little nature preserve and you know what I see? It's all fuel. And you, and you, and you: rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, black man, white man, Deputy Chief. Fire doesn't care about your name, or rank, or badge number; you're all just bite-sized lumps of flesh and bone in the flaming food chain... God I'm hungry!
