Host Ted Blades takes us to Slave Lake where we meet Sandi Gaskell who describes her family's harrowing flight from the fire. Ian Cameron is new to town, but he's organizing a benefit concert to raise everyone's morale, and some cash to rebuild. Fire and water - essential elements for survival, terribly destructive if they get out of control. Marcy Markusa takes us to Artnur Jonassen's sodden fields where we meet a dairy farmer who's become a modern day Noah.
A seasonal fishplant worker in Elliston, Newfoundland, couldn't afford to pay house insurance. Now his family of eleven is homeless after a fire. A kind neighbor is raising money to help the family rebuild. Leslie Duff of Ottawa needs help too. He weighs nearly 400 pounds and is too embarrassed to swim in public, the only exercise he can do. So, he's offering to clean backyard pools in exchange for a swim. Alex Babinsky is not shy. He proposed to his girlfriend during the taping of one of Oprah Winfrey's last shows. Joya Balfour isn't shy either. She posted her wedding video on YOUTUBE and more than half a million people have already seen it.
