Their parents told them not to play in the church but they still did. While they were playing inside, the church caught on fire.
Once Pony and Johnny heard that there were kids inside, they ran right in. Dally and a guy tried to stop them but they were too late. Pony and Johnny were already in the church.
They got all the children out. Then, Pony and Johnny tried to get out. Pony got out but his back was on fire so Dally hit him, knocking him out. Dally then went to help Johnny out. Then a beam fell on Johnny. Dally got him out with many injuries.
