Now, this is a difficult part, because I am not entirely sure how I was seeing this fire door. I got the impression that this hallway went to the right and there was like a fire door here or something with a push bar. This hallway made like an L, and this was part of another L that went like this. This was outside and this is inside, and after you made the left in the hallway, where this arrow is, I went down-here. This- wall, for some reason I got the impression the walls is divider. You know, like it was a fake wall, you now, and you went down the end of this hall and made another left, and on your immediate right was big glass double doors. and on your left was like small sets of double doors...went down the front like that.

OK..and I was trying to go over the building to see what was on the other side and I was running into this blank wall. These blank ..this horseshoe blank walls on the inside here, and I wasn't getting over the building. That clearly was some kind of a reception or something.

There appeared to be some kind of a fire door. I guess I'll mark those with Xs and circles. There's a fire door here, there's a fire door here, there's a fire door here, and a fire door here. That's the impression that I had. These were doors-flat exterior hardware and I'm assuming them to be fire doors. You know, they could have been ..... I don't know.....a place.where you pick up the garbage, or something..... and...uh...I got the impression this was a walk path.
