Code Red: Part 2

You'd think that in this rural part of Texas, Sgt. Fraser would have his hands full with fires for his department to quench. And you'd be right, which is why he didn't think that this fire would be any different from the others. It did look a little different though - the flames were somehow a brighter shade of red. Maybe he just needed some more coffee.

The fire was in an old building on a farm run by a couple who has disappeared months ago. Nobody can come to check on them and there were no neighbors to report anything. The Sheriff has just let it drop. And so would have Sgt. Fraser, if it wasn't for the fact that his men has been unable to douse the fire. It was somehow different, it didn't seem to respond to water at all. Maybe it was a chemical fire, in which case he'd have to make some calls to higher-ups.

And then, almost miraculously, the fire died out. Rather, it just disappeared, as if it had never been there. Behind it was left the ruins of the home... and two well, things. At first, they looked like two men. But how could two men have survived the fire and how did they get there in the first place? But when Sgt. Fraser approached them, he realized that they weren't men at all. Or maybe they were. They were shaped like human beings all right, but they were all red, like they were made of red jello.

VILLAGE TERRORIZED BY RED BEINGS
Houston, TX: Reports are coming in of a village in southern Texas under attack by two unknown red beings that seem to have the ability to spew fire and leave destruction in their wake. While this newspaper has been unable to confirm the reports, multiple agencies are reporting that these two beings, who seem unstoppable, have already looted banks and stores, killing those who tried to stop them.

Local fire marshal Sgt. Frank Fraser appears to have been their first victim. No one knows where they came from or what they are. The Governor's Office is yet to make a statement on the issue, but sources have told us that they are actively considering deploying the Texas National Guard as the situation continues to go out of hand.
