How did I get in?  
  • Firestorm setting:  
  • Avatar (top menu)--Move and View--
  • Movement tab-Double click on land--Teleport to clicked point
  • -
  • To get camera into the room:
  • Point camera to look along an exterior side of the room
  • Move camera sideways into the room (sideways arrow)
  • When you see the room clearly, double-click on the floor

Personal sub

I could have used the sub.   You are supposed to wear it.  But it did not attach correctly.  And my avatar has no problem under water.  So I did not need it.
