“ But she's gone for good. I think she's dead.”
Guy Montag is a fireman. and his job is to find anybody who owns books and burn the books, and the houses they were in. So when he would go and find books and houses he would have to burn everything with it. (Except people)
Montag found a house that had books in it, so he went to the house to go burn it down, but the women wouldn't come out. She lit herself and her books in her kitchen, and this truly affected Montag.
When Mildred told Montag that Clarisse died from a speeding car, Montag was devastated. After that day he developed a chill and a fever, and he left 5 extra hours than usual.
