Emmerdale fans horrified as Arthur leaves sleeping Dotty in a smoke-filled tent after starting a fire

EMMERDALE fans are horrified after Arthur Thomas’ revenge plan against Archie Sharma put his baby sister Dotty in serious danger.

The toddler was looked to have been overcome with fumes from the blaze that her elder brother started.

Poor Dotty was still in the tent when the fire went up

She was sleeping in the tent next to the fire that Arthur set up trying to blame Archie for it but it all went horribly wrong.

“Now you’re going to know what it feels like to be blamed for something you didn’t do,” said Arthur as he set his plan in motion.

Pouring the lighter fluid all over the fire he tried to goad Archie into striking the match.

When Archie refused, insisting he wanted to wait for his grandfather Rishi to return to do it, Arthur tried to strike the match himself.

Archie grabbed it to stop him but in the process Arthur struck the match and kicked the bottle of lighter fluid all over.

The bottle caught fire and exploded in front of the boys and quickly began to spread.

They ran off leaving Dotty alone in the tent next to the spreading fire.

And in a horrifying scene at the end of the episode, Dotty was unconscious in the smoke-filled tent.

Viewers were terrified she had died and were disgusted at Arthur’s behaviour.

One wrote: “OMG poor little Dotty’s still asleep in that tent”

A second said: “Well done Arthur, you’ve done roasted your baby sister”

Another added: “that shot of the smoke billowing over Dotty was chilling. WOW.”
