While Delko and Speed visit dodgy Quentin Haid's nightclub, DJ Scorpius's pyrotechnics start a raging fire which burns it down in no time, with many casualties. Eric's new girlfriend Connie Wilkes dies from inhaled heat, later the missing barman is found under rubble, but fatally killed with a broken bottle. Haid actually used most waitresses as call-girls and lies about his earnings. Haig ordered bouncer Danny Maxwell to keep the exits locked, but passed fire marshal Ronnie Jameson's routine safety muster. Written by KGF Vissers
