Almost half of deliberately set fires in Britain are started by children and teenagers. And fire services are running more and more intervention schemes for thousands of young people every year. This film follows three of them. The charred mattress of ten year old Liam, the brazen fire-fascination of Ryan and the random acts of bedroom firesetting by fourteen year old North London girl, Hulya, all represent different challenges for the Fire Sevice counsellors, who are determined not just to stop the firesetting, but also to understand the anger and frustration that underpins it.
