A fire breaks out at Emmerdale Farm in a stack of straw and the Beckindale Volunteer Fire Service is manfully fighting the blaze. During the fire fighting one of the members of the team is burned. The Vicar asks Dolly if she will accompany him to the club after Joe drops out. She is reluctant and thinks the vicar should consider his reputation in the village. But the vicar is adamant that he wants her to go and will try and persuade her.
