    The plague thankfully skips her immediate family over but they are not so lucky when it comes to the fire. Their house is made inhabitable by the blaze. Thanks to the loophole, the family has since moved into their estate in London as they await the rebuilding of their home. Mr. Darby is awaiting the quarantine to be officially over before he initiates the rebuilding process.
