Dennis tries to get the fire under control but the curtains catch light. The firemen deal with the fire and have to spray under the floorboards. Dennis resigns from the yard before Len can sack him. Annie wants Lucille to work at Gamma Garments but she refuses. Dave Smith tells Irma he's thinking of opening a new betting shop in the area. She refuses to sell the shop to him. Dennis asks Emily for the Gamma job and against her better judgement she gives it to him. Dave tells Len it was him who pulled Paul out of the canal - not Percy Bridge.
