While trying to burn old JUMP issues, Gintoki is captured by a female fire fighter in search of a local arsonist.
Gintoki goes out to the alley to throw away his old JUMP magazines, but is caught by Otose who berates him for throwing it out on combustible trash day and not on Wednesday when it's recycling day. Telling him to take it back, she throws her cigarette away and walks away. Gintoki notices that her cigarette lit a pile of garbage bags, and attempts to put it out by urinating on it.
He is hosed from a fire extinguisher by Tatsumi who accuses him of being a serial arsonist and arrests him.
