Faber forced Montag to torch his own home.

"I want you to do this job all by your lonesome, Montag. Not with kerosene and a match, but piecework, with a flamethrower. Your house, your clean-up."


"Ready." Montag snapped the safety-catch on the flamethrower.
A great nuzzling gout of flame leapt out to lap at the books and knock them against the wall.
