Ryan Anderson got suspended from Station 52 a year and a half ago for a daredevil act that nearly killed someone. Now he's back in San Gabriel, fighting to return to the force. He takes a job at a local dive, the Hair of the Dog, while he studies for the test that will get him his job back. But the real test comes in the form of Katie Dane, bar manager. Katie got stuck running the family bar when her father had a heart attack. The place is losing money like crazy and the insurance is about to lapse. Her desperate solution? Burn the place down, collect a million dollars. The only problem - little does she know, her new bartender is actually a firefighter. Can a professional fireman and a wannabe firebug ever manage to get along? More importantly, can they stay away from each other and/or keep from ruining each other's careers? Not likely. This is San Gabriel, after all.
