Firefighters, paramedics and police respond to a major fire at a motel for transients. Two boys, 12-year-old Steve (MAX LIGOSH) and brother Danny (JOHNNY CENICOLA), 8, tell Bosco that their mother is still inside. Doherty rescues her, but her injuries are severe, and she later dies at Mercy Hospital. Steve says that he knows his abusive dad (EDMUND WILKINSON) set the blaze but adds that the two brothers left the hotel as soon as he arrived. Burns in Steve's lungs make a detective, Kyser (recurring guest star TASHA LAWRENCE), suspicious. Bosco gets the truth from Danny. The boys' drunken mother passed out while smoking a cigarette and inadvertently started the fire. The boys escaped but let her burn because she failed to intercede when their father beat them. They blamed him for the blaze to avoid living with him. Bosco pleads with a social worker (KAREN TSEN LEE) to keep the brothers together in the same foster home.
