Fires are breaking out at an industrial building. It's your job to find and save the workers trapped inside, and put out fires along the way.
You control a firefighter with an unlimited amount of fire extinguishing agent. Spray the fire to quench it, but beware because it spreads quickly! Find the workers trapped in the room, and help them navigate to the exit. They are overcome by smoke and fear, and will wander aimlessly unless you are close by to guide them. They can perish if they end up too close to a large fire!
Some rooms contain crates and/or barrels which you can push out of your way if they block your path. Be careful how you move them, though; you can only push, you cannot pull them! (You can also push workers if they get in your way.) Pipes pump gas through some rooms, and any cracks will leak this flammable material into the air. If you can reach the valve, you can turn off the flow. If there's an ax, you can pick it up. Instead of pushing crates, you will destroy them (they may take two hits). Be careful navigating near pipes once you have the ax, as you will damage them!
When fire spreads to oil barrels or gas leaking from pipes it will cause an explosion, spreading even more fire. Beware of chain reactions!
