For Rishi Sharma’s birthday party, rival Archie and Arthur’s families go on a camping trip in the garden.
After a game of rounders, Arthur got increasingly jealous of attention and praise heaped on Archie, particularly by Laurel.
Rishi told the children he was going to light the campfire shortly, but then Archie and Arthur were left alone together.
Meanwhile, Dottie was fast asleep in a nearby tent.
Arthur persuaded Archie to pour lighter fluid on the fire, and told him to light it.
Archie refused, and smacked the match out of Arthur’s hand, but it fell on the pit.
The two boys shouted and ran away in shock when it burst into flames, not seeing the flames spark over and hit the tent.
And as the dramatic episode concluded, Dottie could be seen sleeping in the tent, with dangerous amounts of smoke billowing in.
“One horrified viewer tweeted: “That shot of the smoke billowing over Dotty was chilling. WOW. #emmerdale “.
“And Dotty is inside the tent! THE DRAMA!” exclaimed another.
“Arthur is the devils child #Emmerdale ” wrote a third.
Well done Arthur, you’ve done roasted your baby sister. #emmerdale ” added a fourth.
A fifth quipped: “OMG poor little Dotty’s still asleep in that tent #Emmerdale “.
Meanwhile, Harriet finch got into her car with corrupt cop DI Malone and revealed to him that she knows everything.
She threatened Will Taylor, saying she was going to tell the police about the drugs ring.
She was still furious at him for putting Dawn in danger, but he reminded her if he was arrested for the drugs, this would not bone well for Dawn either.
Charity Dingle and Vanessa had a blazing row, and though Vanessa apologised, Charity still appeared to hold a grudge.
