Explosion Near the Market

A warehouse belonging to the Watchful Order of Magists and Protectors, used for the storage of experimental magics and relics, was destroyed in an explosion last night near the city market. The explosion caused a panic in the city streets that left three people dead and six injured by trampling, while the Watchful Order reported eight of its members are dead or missing, including Master Jaris Devard. The building itself burned to the ground, but due to the efforts of the city fire brigade, the blaze did not spread to surrounding buildings.

Three citizens selflessly entered the building to search for survivors, and were rewarded by the Watchful Order for their efforts.

Any rumors that a strange creature came out of the fire and attacked bystanders, or that other such creatures were found within the building, are denied vehemently by the Watchful Order. Any rumors that there was a terrible keening noise from within the building that echoed through the heads of those nearby as the building burned are likewise denied.

[Those actually in the Order might get more info on this; get a hold of me to check.]
