Mabel and Idony saw smoke coming from a block from their house. They decided to see if something was happening and if someone needed help.
The girls were shocked at how big the fire was. There were screams and shouts. Tons of people ran, their hair or cloths singed. Some carried belongings, most were empty handed. The girls were soon separated from each other
Idony trips and her skirt catches of fire. She puts it out by ripping off part of her dress and stomping on it. The girls try and find each other in the crowd of screaming people.
