Eddie turned up the next street to the left. There were no signs, of course, so he couldn't be quite sure which one it was, but it led directly to Commercial Road. When he reached the intersection, he could see more clearly. The flames were off to the left a short distance. Two incendiary bombs had fallen here. One had landed in the street, damaging the pavement. The other had struck a few buildings and set them ablaze. The roofs had for the most part fallen in, and flames also blazed in the windowframes, which were devoid of glass. There was no sign of any movement and no sound of anything inside the buildings but the crackling of the fire, which was a good thing. It seemed highly unlikely anyone could be alive in there at this point. There were a few men from the fire brigade in the street outside, playing their hose on the flames, but it did little good.

Eddie approaches the firemen, asking if they need any help or if they've any news, all the while being careful not to get too near the flames.

He also scans the buildings for any signs of life.

"Blimey Felix, It's a mess and no mistake."

"Cheers, mate," said one of the firemen, "but I don't think there's any more you can do. This fire's just going to have to burn itself out, but at least we can stop it spreading. The building will likely be gutted."

Eddie decides to wait a bit to see if the flames die down. He wants to try and make sure no-one was caught in the blaze.

Eddie watched for a couple of minutes as the firemen fought the blaze. They were able to keep it under control, but it did not seem to be dying down much. It seemed evident that nobody could still be alive inside the building.

"On we go then Felix. Best get on with it."

Eddie carries on carefully down the road, looking about as he goes, all the while resisting the urge to whistle.

Eddie returned to his patrol route, passing more bomb damage. He pedaled up White Horse Road, turning right on Salmon Lane. As he neared Regent's Canal, which he could not see but could detect by the stench, he saw the unmistakable glare of an electric torch, one without a hood, in the distance ahead. Whatever fool was doing that might as well be telling the Germans "Bomb here."

"Cor blimey! Who the bloody 'ell's that?!"

Eddie sets off full pelt towards the source of the light, determined to give them a right mouth full.

Eddie pedaled rapidly down Salmon Lane. The light went out again, thankfully, but not before he saw its source. It had been coming from the open front door of a warehouse. A sign over the large loading door beside it, which was closed, read "HORRANCE AND SON." Eddie also saw a large pool of blood in the middle of the street. A trail of it led straight through the open warehouse door.

Spoiler:
Eddie, please roll Listen.

Eddie leans his bike quietly against the wall by the entrance, tickles Felix's ears reassuringly and carefully peers in through the door.

As Eddie leaned his bicycle against the wall, he heard a girl's voice coming from just inside the door saying "Uh, yeah, sorry about that. Do you know of a shelter nearby?"" When he reached the door, he saw her just inside. She was a pretty teenage girl dressed all in black, with jeans, a jacket over a blouse, and boots. Behind her stood a middle-aged man wearing an overcoat and a woman in her twenties wearing trousers and a jacket over a woolen pullover. All of them held electric torches, which were thankfully off at the moment. He could see that the trail of blood led past the three strangers, but their presence in the doorway restricted his view. Eddie knew that the nearest shelter was not far away, in the basement of St. James's Church. The quickest way to get there was via Yorkshire Road, which led southwest a short distance from here.
