Vic drops by Lance's apartment. Lance informs him that his enemy, Jerry Martinez, is going to kidnap Louise again as soon as she gets out of the hospital. So, Vic drives to the hospital in Downtown and picks up Louise from the hospital. Vic asks her about wanting to do something fun, but he receives a message from Lance who says he's trapped in a burning building and wants Vic to bring a helicopter. Louise then informs Vic of a helicopter on the hospital's roof.
Vic and Louise take the Air Ambulance and Vic flies over to Ocean Beach where Lance is seen in a roof up in flames. Lance says that he has been attacked by Martinez's goons who took his money and wants to get them back as the Martinez goons are escaping in boats. Vic flies over the boats as Lance from the chopper fires and kills all the goons. Afterwards, he jumps on the boat with his money and leaves while Vic takes Louise back to her sister's apartment in Little Havana.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to the Downtown Hospital to pick up Louise
- Take Louise to the helicopter
- Go to Lance and see what trouble he is in
- Land the helicopter on the rooftop before Lance is burned alive by the fire
- Martinez' goons are fleeing in boats! Take Lance to kill them
- Position the helicopter just above the Tropic boat
- Take Louise home

Phil Cassidy: Thanks for looking after Louise, man. I appreciate it. Any time I can help - just call...
- The so-called "building on fire" effect is rather poorly realized in this mission, which also never explains why Lance was at that particular building. Unlike most other missions where a building has been set on fire in this and past games, after this mission the building appears none the worse for wear.
