There is a firebug who has been setting fires around the small town all week. Bubbie's mum goes to warn the neighbours of a fire in their paddock, leaving Bubbie at home on her own. While Mum is away, an extremely tired and hungry man visits Bubbie, and she naively entertains him. Eventually she discovers he has terrible burns on his feet, and his coat is full of matches. The man falls asleep and Bubbie accidentally starts a fire.
