"Chuck, there's a fire at the Fortune City Arena. It looks like some people are trapped in one of the dressing rooms."
Stacey Forsythe

Barn Burner is a mission in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record.

It involves saving Elrod Bumpkins and Trixie-Lynn Horton, a married couple who have accidentally trapped themselves inside of a room located in the Fortune City Arena.


Chuck receives a call about a couple trapped in a burning room in the Fortune City Arena. The pair, Elrod Bumpkins and Trixie-Lynn Horton, are heard calling for help behind some flames. They have apparently started a fire in the doorway to keep the zombies out, but are unable to escape due to leaving the extinguisher on the other side of the door. Chuck must put the fire out with the extinguisher in order to rescue them from the burning room.

Once the fire is extinguished, the pair will join Chuck to evacuate to the Safe House.

Mission DialogueEdit

Dialogue of the mission in the Off the Record game files. All text may not be actually used in the final game.


  • This mission is a reference to William Faulkner's short story "Barn Burning".
  • The debris set on fire include several protestor signs, suggesting that Elrod's and Trixie-Lynn's attitude towards the zombie-rights group CURE are of distaste, if not outright hatred.
  • The water gun can be used as an alternative method of putting out the flames.
