A team of elite firefighters must face one of their biggest challenges yet. Jake Carson and his team rescue three siblings from a fire. When the team discover that the trio of youngsters don't know where their family is, they are forced to take the children back to the station and set up a strange sort of babysitting service. Taking care of the siblings will show the group of firefighters both how complicated and how rewarding it is to raise children.
