Tinder Box is the twenty-second episode in season one of CSI: Miami.


Speedle and Delko are present when a trendy nightclub catches fire, apparently from a DJ's pyrotechnics display, killing 16 people and injuring dozens of others. But the ensuing investigation reveals it may have been arson to cover up a murder. Also, Horatio probes the death of a prostitute who is found dead in a judge's bathroom in his home.
