Episode Summary

EDIT
Fireflies (1)
AIRED:
The smell of smoke and Lost River is enveloped in an eerie haze. Newcomer to the town, Lill, is anxious. Her husband Perry is at work and she is out alone on their 25-hectare once weekender. She doesn't know how far away the fire is and doesn't want to look a fool by calling for help. Finally a neighbour visits Lill's house and re-assures her that the fire is 15km away and has been brought under control. But that night, Lill can't sleep. She gets up and follows the glow of the distant fire. Eventually finding it beside the road north of town, she watches the amazing firies in action. Lill realises that belonging and surviving in this community means belonging to the RFS. The community of Lost River needs volunteers, the small town heroes without whom so many country towns would wither and die. There's the captain, "Backa" Burke, everybody's mate. There's Joey, Mr Responsibility, with a serious demeanour that belies his youth. There's Joey's gorgeous girlfriend Fifi, a member of the notorious Sharp family, a family who knows no fear. There's the equipment officer, silent Eris with the angelic singing voice. There's lads and lasses and blokes in their 50s. Then Old Peg Beecher smashes her car and needs a lift to her CWA meeting, and the only one who can do it is Lill. Lill expected that being part of the community would be hard work, but she didn't know you had to be a saint to even make a start. Meanwhile, the fire that they thought was put out is still smouldering, and Lill's worst nightmare comes true. Even one bad fire can kill - but this time they'll be fighting on two fronts.moreless
