    Oh boy! I know we’re all hoping for the last-second-rescue, but Aaron does tend to occasionally throw us curve balls.

    Looks like Holly is thinking of trying to use one of the laundry bins to shield the hole to try to keep the smoke out for a bit longer.

    Only occasionally???


    A number of problems here but the biggest one, I think, will be the chimney effect, not smoke, once the door has burned through. I don’t recall any other outlet and the hot air is going to want out and the only way is up the laundry chute. Not only will the air be too hot to breathe but it will be almost devoid of oxygen.

    There doesn’t seem to be much in the room to burn so if Holly can block the opening it will give them a little bit more time.

    She finally got Holly’s name right!
    A daring last second escape, hopefully there isn’t anything unpleasant awaiting our heroes.
    There are fates far, far worse than fire!

    Wont work in a flashover. It will suck the oxygen out of the room causing suffocation and raise the temperature to sear.
    Holly’s use of the basket will shield them from the initial heat blast as it slams up against the chute opening. It won’t hold long.

    I just commented before I read the comments here. I sure hope that is what Holly is doing. To shelter inside the bin would be nuts.
    I didn’t give Holly enough credit, she is smart!
    Thanks for explaining this.

    great expression on Holly’s face in 3.
    This is a nail-biter.

    I would’ve thought smoke inhalation would be the greatest danger at this point. Though I don’t know what’s burning on the other side of that door.

    I, for one, was not hoping for a last minute rescue. Almost everybody is at the fights and even the lady who checked the eggery is unaware of the fire.

    The lizards laughing at Wally’s “clown show” have no idea how much trouble they are in.

    It also occurs to me that Jim is probably still alive and since he probably started the fire, he might be waiting at the top of the laundry chute.

    Smoke is the problem now….the fire needs oxygen to burn….think of a blow torch suddenly getting a burst of oxygen….that what will happen when that door goes…..the fire will move into the room engulfing it in flames as it feeds on the oxygen…..an old volunteer I worked with called it “dragon’s breath”. That is why they tell you to feel the door and if it is hot, do not open it, the fire will flashing to the new air increasing the temperature to flash fry. Stay low helps but the O2 is dangerously low which is why folks get confused due to oxygen starvation….many die with in reach of getting out only getting disoriented by the lack of O2 in the brain and turned back into the fire.
    What ever it is behind that door is intense and now seeking fresh O2, when that door collapses…..I would not want to be in that room except in a fire proof suit and air pack.

    Yes, the fire may be running low on oxygen needed to burn, and opening the door, may cause the flames to go chasing the oxygen.


    Yeah, I think Holly will try to block the chute after she goes in.
