BEAUFORT and BARCLAY, both with eyes on the MAP CASE as it comes to rest, burning, in its own circle of flames. Each considering reaching for it.
SABRE and PAYNE, as PAYNE forces her inexorably back towards the FIRE raging at her back.
SABRE forced back by PAYNE, still with their blades locked; she’s slipping on the burning deck, her back-most leg (would be her left, I think) sliding into the FLAMES.
BEAUFORT lunges, hand out, for the CASE, now truly engulfed in flames.
BEAUFORT, hand out, looks up, wide-eyed.

One of the SUPPORT CROSSBEAMS gives way, collapsing on poor BEAUFORT in a shower of splinters, flame, and sparks.
BARCLAY recoils, shielding himself from the flames, hit by debris.
PAYNE is reacting, breaking the lock with SABRE to turn and look in alarm at the collapse.
