The Characters

I’m not careless. I would never lose this journal. Too many years. Too much evidence collected here. The only reason why you would have this journal is if I finally found my answers…and got too close to his flames…

My name is Amy Durant. When I was 8 I lost my parents in an apartment fire…but it wasn’t the flames or smoke that took them. There was something in that fire. Malevolent. Indescrimant. Evil.

I’ve spent my life trying to find what we saw in fire all those years ago.

“We” – I’m referring to Vic Salomon – The firefighter who saved me that night. He saw it too. Vic was there for me when I was younger…but has since tried to distance himself from me. He pretends to believe we saw nothing that night. And I continue to remind him we did. His boss Fire Chief Edmonds seems to constantly sway him from the truth.

Uncle Robby took me in after my parents died. I lived at his vintage resale shop most of my life. Uncle Robby is an angel…but his old shop is a tinderbox waiting to go up. I spend most of my time in the shed outside the shop where it’s fire safe. I love my Uncle, but I worry for him & feel guilty for leaving him alone.

Across the street from my Uncle’s shop is a homeless encampment. When I’m not chasing fires, I hand out sandwiches and spend time with a good friend and resident, Jade. She’s a lot like me. She’s had her brush with flames and carries the scars. The worst scars Jade carries are on the inside & I try hard to keep her from making more.

Recently, the encampment started turning around and I’m optimistic for Jade since Patricia Lefeu and her father Jacob have stepped up. Patricia runs a nonprofit helping the homeless that’s funded by her wealthy father. My optimism is cautious…This encampment has been around for decades. Why are they here now?
