Help save a burning house is a quest in Wasteland 2. If you find the scorched valve first, it's called Find a use for a scorched valve wheel instead.

Overview[]

Upon entering the top terrace, the Rangers witness a house burning from a mortar shell. Its owner, Mark Stachowiak, asks them for help.

Walkthrough[]

  • Grab the valve lying in the grass south of the house.
  • Use it on the pump hub next to the house, then use Mechanical Repair to activate it. Alternatively, use Hard Ass, Kiss Ass, or Smart Ass to force Mark to help repair the damage.
  • This will put out the fire.

Reward[]

  • 100 experience.
