Why Is This Night Different from All Other Nights?

Lemony Snicket finds out about Alice from her husband, Prosper, before leaving town. Alice had "a great interest in sculpture," and she had a collection of statues, some of which were her own; she passed down this interest to her daughter. She displayed them in the Far West Wing of The Lost Arms inn, hoping that the glyptotheca would attract tourists. However, a fire began in the wing, and while Ornette managed to get the guests and staff to safety, Alice was the only casualty of the fire.
