A WNEM-TV series "looks at the hidden epidemic of juvenile firesetters, focusing first on a teenager caught in the compulsion to burn." It also details the story of "a grieving father [who] shows how a fascination with fire can lead to crime." The investigation reveals that "one reason why urban areas like Flint and Saginaw might fall prey to arsonists so easily is because there are so many abandoned buildings."
