Dusty loves racing, but he’s always pushing the boundaries. One day, Dusty finds out he must take a break from racing because one of his parts needs replacing. The problem is the part is so rare the mechanics may have a hard time finding it. Doubting this, Dusty flies away and pushes himself into the red zone. Even though he was told not to do this, his engine shuts off, and he spirals down. Hitting some things, Dusty starts a fire, and Mayday the firetruck must help put it out. The whole town starts to help. They are able to put the fire out, but they also find out they aren’t really completely equipped to do it. So, they decide they need a firefighter plane. Feeling bad, Dusty decides to step up and learn how to be a firefighter.
Being a firefighter is tough stuff, however. Dusty learns this is true when he goes to a place that fights fires daily. When arriving, Dusty meets Blade Ranger, head of the firefighting team. Blade is a harsh, strict leader who shows Dusty every time he’s doing something wrong. Dusty also meets Dipper, a very friendly girly firefighter who’s been a fan of Dusty’s for a long time. Dipper is so excited Dusty is now joining the firefighting team. As Dusty is learning, he must fly into real fires and learn he can’t make the calls, but must follow the direction of Blade. Will Dusty be able to humble himself and take directions?
