Relatively little is known about the Firehouse. It is rumored that this area was the location of the great Boston Fire of 1872, and equally that some nefarious denizen lives in its depths, but all that is really known is that it’s on fire. All the time. Every building in the district – save one – is completely aflame, and though the flames don’t seem to cause any structural damage they do prevent anyone without the peculiar talent of asbestos skin from living inside.
The one building apparently unaffected by all this is an art school, whose invitation-only students find their commute somewhat enlivened by their flaming surroundings, a fact that perhaps contributes to their tendency to draw on fire as a subject. Faceless eyes are also a popular motif, perhaps due to the unnerving feeling of being watched so prevalent in the area. Predictably enough, crime is low, or more accurately nonexistent in this district.
