   Dan uses water cannons on Archie to douse the flames, while Laurie helps the people board the ship through the ramp. Dan gets on top to fly to give the people more room. Dan uses his Gatling gun to bring down the rooftop water tower to control the fire. Laurie then jumps from the ship and crashes through the ceiling. She helps the people onto the ship and barely escapes an explosion.
