Fire at Toad Hall is an Episode of The Wind in the Willows. First aired on February 26, 1987 and repeated on November 26, 1987.

While out for an autumn stroll, Mole and Rat notice a column of smoke rising from Toad Hall, and hasten to the rescue at once. Toad himself leaves them to extinguish the blaze, then returns and tries to take the credit. Badger arrives and finds out the cause of the fire from Toad: he had been camping indoors (claiming "it looked like rain"), and lit a stove inside the tent. Mole is persuaded to put him up while the Hall is restored, but reluctant to adapt to his way of life, Toad insists on filling Mole End with his furniture and special works of art which leads to trouble. Eventually, Mole gets fed up and leaves to spend time at Rat's, making sure to lock Toad out of the house.
