The demon seems to lose interest in you and retreats to the fireplace. The flames rush up the chimney and disappear, filling the cabin with an acrid black smoke. The wind that accompanied the demon's assault also vanishes. The cabin door creaks open and a pile of ash, soot and dust spills over the hearth. If you wish to leave now turn to 294. If you think you've seen the last of the fire demon you can investigate the pile of ashes by turning to 43. Either way you can add 2 LUCK points for surviving this encounter.
