Note: A three-minute video introduction to the game is now available. Enjoy!



Introduction

A fire has erupted in a large home, threatening the property and its occupants. As the first responders to the fire, players must enter the home to rescue the people trapped inside. Resources are scarce, and time is not an ally. As the fire spreads out of control, victims are endangered and the building approaches collapse. Players must cooperate to mount a successful rescue effort.
