Like a pack of rambunctious school children, the Avengers and their allies race up the stairs to the top floor of F4HQ and expropriate a FantastiCar. Blackbird, having taken the controls, gracefully lifts the ship up and through the retractable ceiling which opens automatically as the ship rises.

reach the Brand Corporate Warehouse. The warehouse is on an isolated block, with a fenced in area behind the facility. The warehouse is actually two buildings: a two-story stucture with former skylights (now shattered due to an explosion) adjacent to a private pier, and a four-story building with access into the building from the roof.
Niether building is actually "on fire"
